I finished the table runner yesterday.  I love how it turned out even if I had a few hiccups while making it.

I was having problems with the center blocks and the sashing.  I finally figured it out and it's not exactly the same as the pattern, but I'm fine with what I did.  I picked up this kit at Log Cabin Quilts in Exira, IA while on the All Iowa Shop Hop.  

I have one more project I purchased with the Iowa fabric.  It's larger, a lap/twin size quilt.  I'm going on a Retreat with friends the end of June and I think I will take this with me.  I know, I have lots of UFO's and my PhD's that I should be working on.  I decided that if I buy a kit I need to make it up right away.  And if I don't have time to do that, I shouldn't buy the kit.  So will be working on a PhD project, the golfing dogs and the lap quilt.

I also spent time yesterday pin basting a wall hanging.  I want to machine quilt part of it and then do some perle cotton accents on it. It's a convenience piece by Thimbleberries.  It's the perfect size for my quilt rack in the kitchen and I need a winter quilt for it.

I love summer vacation, I get to be a stay at home quilter!
