Time to put the red white and blue away and get out the sunflowers and summery colors. This pretty Schnibbles pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. fits the bill. It is called Jersey Girl and I made it with a fabric collection called Honky Tonk, which somehow seems fitting. The beautiful custom quilting on it is by Mary Flynn of Quilt Hollow.
As I write this, I have Beer Can Chicken roasting in the oven and things feel nice and summery around the house. I bought a nice big cantaloupe at the market this morning and cut it up for dinner as well. I snitched a couple of pieces and it tastes like----nothing. Nothing at all. How can that be? It is just so wrong. I remember when I was a little girl, Grandma Agnes would buy farm stand local melons and they were so sweet we would have them for dessert with a scoop of ice cream. If I close my eyes I can smell them. Where did all the good melons go?
