Jelly Flops

The neutral jelly flops are cut! Subee suggested I hang them on a drying rack to see how they looked (and to display the colors better).  Let's just say 80 yards of fabric stress tested the drying rack.  I was going to carry it upstairs to get a better picture, but I realized that couldn't happen.

This is one side of the drying rack...

This is the other side...

And here they are all folded up and ready to travel.  I decided it would be easier to take the box to the library where there are lots of tables and open area to do the swapping.  The red plaid...well that was handy (laying on the floor), so I grabbed it before I had a land slide!! 

I have most of my stuff loaded for a weekend of sewing.  I didn't get any sewing done of quilt backings this week, so that is what I will be working on at the retreat.  It doesn't sound too exciting, but it is necessary.  I can't really judge how long this will take, so I packed 3 quilts that just need borders.  The best part about these weekends is spending time with friends, so it really doesn't matter what I am working on.  Well, the food is great too!!
