Having lots of Flea Market Fancy on hand, I cut some 2.5 inch strips and made my own "jelly roll" paired with Kona PFD white purchased with a 50% off coupon at JoAnn's. (love those)
It took us pretty much all day to get the strips cut into the sizes needed, with a break here and there for chatting and a quick lunch of yogurt, fresh blackberries and homemade granola parfaits. (Yummy!)
Vicki had a lovely jelly roll of Sunkissed by Sweetwater to work with. Since she was short one strip, I gave her one cut from Flea Market Fancy to fill in. (Do you spot it?) Instead of "Good Fortune" I think we should call our quilts "Good Friend"! In my world, there's not much better than spending the day sewing with a good friend.
The directions call for using 36 jelly roll strips. This is what I had left after cutting...
Vicki had a bunch, as well. We probably have enough for another small quilt each!
After Vicki left for home, another good friend stopped by for a drink. (Notice my lovely "green grass"....that's what happens when there's a drought and the temps are 100+ for days on end.)
The stream that runs through our property has been dried up for weeks. I'd guess that my little garden pond is the only available water nearby right now....so my barred owl friend (and two others) has been hanging around quite a bit!
I love it when good friends stop by, don't you!P.S. Please don't judge my crop of string algae on the water fall...it's the ONLY thing that seems to thrive in this heat!
