Verna Postage Stamp Strips

I've joined the Postage Stamp Quilt Along that psiquilt is doing. She does great tutorials. Very easy to follow. It uses 2 jelly rolls-one print and one solid. I've had a Verna jelly roll and charm pack waiting for just the right project. I fell in love with the fabric so much that I didn't think any project was worthy. I'm not sure this is the perfect way to use my beloved but using what I have from my stash is one of my goals for this year. So, that made it the right project.

The solid I used is Moda Bella Solid White. And let's just say that using a white jelly roll is really lazy. I have the yardage. I could have cut the strips. I'm lazy but I sure enjoyed just unrolling those strips. When I'm brave I'll figure out how much more money a jellyroll costs than cutting it yourself. I think I know how the math will turn out.
My seeds are turning into plants! It is so much fun to check on them every morning when I wake up and every evening when I get home from work. Yes, I'm a nerd. See the tall, proud geraniums...

And the tiny petunias making their way. One kind of petunia didn't germinate. These are tiny little things coming into the world. Fun!

Now I'm off to start some Civil War Project blocks....
