Every year the Chicago Botanic Garden near me hosts The Fine Art of Fiber, a quilt show put on through the cooperation of Illinois Quilters, Inc., North Suburban NeedleArts Guild, and the Weavers Guild of the North Shore. I attended the show yesterday and although most of the quilts in the exhibit were not exactly traditional quilts that are my favorite kind, all were stunning and creative. I thought you might enjoy a peek -
It was a beautiful, clear day - the Botanic Garden itself is a work of art in the fall.
I did not know that Bonsai trees also changed color in the fall.

Rising Sun 1837 by Palmer Blakely
