Shop hopping in Illinois!

Well, I HAD to go to Illinois the last couple days. A couple of friends were getting married...the ones I made the black, white and red quilt for! :) Their wedding was beautiful! I thought Northern Illinois was ALL corn. As it turns out, I'm 99.9% right, but at Starved Rock it was beautiful caves, cliffs, and tons of trees!!! I highly recommend hiking there if you are trying to kill time! :)

Anyhow, before the wedding I had an entire day to kill! The ceremony was at 4:30, so I took myself up to Rockford, IL to a few quilt shops, and as it turns out they were having a shop hop! Fantastic!!!'s what I ended up buying....
I bought some random Kansas Troubles fabric for a log cabin that I'm collecting for. A few patterns, including a Christmas tree one, a watermelon log cabin, and a Mexican star pattern. A few other random yards of stuff, and then a kit (in the plastic kit bag) for a neat ice skating table runner by Atkinson Design.

What have you bought lately? :)
