A COUPLE OF COOL FINISHES


It has turned hot and my only air-conditioned room is my quilt room.  That means I am getting some things finished. 
Back in June I took a workshop at my quilt guild.  The class was taught by a good friend, Carol Logue, who is a certified “Quilt in a Day” instructor.  The quilt she was teaching was Silent Star, an Eleanor Burns pattern.   I just knew, no matter how much I liked it, that I had better make a table runner instead.  So, that is just what I did.  I like it.  It’s a good summer runner.


In my quest to stay cool, I also finished a little gift.  But, I’m only giving you a peek until….


Quilt happy,

Marilyn
