Do i have the best friends or what


My friend Julierose 
Of julierose quilts was making string blocks
I liked them so

Monkey see. monkey do right?


I cut up some unloved yardage into 12 inch
Blocks and made my strings on it
Then i will retrim it back to 12 inches
The hardest part is the center string length




See part of my string mess
Hoping to tame some of it


A tough week at work
So many issues
I was pleasantly surprised with not one but TWO PACKAGES in the mail



Barbara of wonttobequilter sent this sweet 
Package of blues
She knows i am trying to finish up my star quilt border





And Julierose sent some selvages fabric and walnut shells 

Arent quilty friends the best???
