Another Fun Weekend

It was another fun weekend!  On Friday I did some more of the All Iowa Shop Hop.  We headed out around 8:00 am but we decided we should have left earlier.  My companions were Jean and Dianne.

We started at Quilting Connection in Ames and worked our way back home. All in all, we stopped at 7 shops that day.  Thanks Dianne and Jean for a fun, wonderful day!

At Quilters Cupboard in Ankeny, Iowa
I love this idea!  I have a white picket fence around my garden.  I'm thinking my fence will need a couple of quilt blocks. Maybe on the 2 gates.  

One of each color!

Found more of these wonderful little thimbles.  They are a soft plastic and I really like using them.  I had a couple of them, but I lost one on our trip to Alaska a couple of years ago.  So I  bought a few of them so if I lose another one, I'm good!  I have 3 shops left to visit in the SW Iowa section of the hop.  I'm hoping I can add them this next week.  

Saturday was quilt day and I missed most of it.  We are having car problems so I dropped in at quilt day, and was home again, as my husband needed the car.  I took in the little blue and white quilt I had finished earlier in the week.  Brought home 6 quilts that need binding.  I'll show you those as I finish them.
