I went to the Quilt Shop Hop here in Colorado Springs. Actually I only went to two of the shops ( my favorites of course). It was the Southern Colorado Shop Hop which includes Castle Rock, Parker, Colorado Springs, Woodland Park and Pueblo and maybe more towns, I'm not sure. Anyway, I went to Ruth's Stitchery and High Country Quilts. I came home with a couple of patterns and rulers and this Joyful Christmas Border Stripe by makower uk which I made up into a 60 degree tablerunner. I always enjoy seeing patterns the stripes make as they turn on the angles.
I have been working on a strip quilt also. It is fun just putting strips together without matching anything. I also have a new computer that has been so enjoyably occupying my time. That and my new NICU job at the newest hospital here in town. Hope you are having a great summer!
