Yesterday, I stopped by the Fine Art of Fiber Quilt Show at the Chicago Botanic Garden, sponsored by Illinois Quilters, Inc., North Suburban NeedleArts Guild and Weavers Guild of the North Shore. It was a gorgeous, sunny day, if a bit on the chilly side. But I didn't mind because it was a chance for me to get back to the Chicago Botanic Garden and walk around - the first time I was able to do that since my surgery. AND see some unique quilts while I was at it.
With a few exceptions, most of the quilts on display were contemporary designs and it's always fun to see what "the other side" is creating, LOL.

I told you it was chilly. There was a bit of a frost overnight, which made everything glisten in the sun.

Still some beautiful fall colors.

It was much warmer inside the greenhouses!
Reminded me of my floor after I've been sewing . . .
I was sort of "pooped" afterwards and so, back at home, we took a nice long nap . . .
