|We are not in Kansas anymore... (we're in Indiana)|
|The drive between the western 'burbs of Chicago and Indiana is a pretty one - |
once you get past Gary.
|Beautiful sunset tonight.|
|Lolly's treated our group to a catered dinner, then we hit the shops.|
I picked up some notions and a Jennifer Chiaverini novel.
|This is the "sewing room" at the conference center. It's a huge|
room set up for 100 people. Two quilters split an 8' table.
Shared cutting and ironing stations... and a ginormous snack table.
|We had a nice presentation by a quilt historian on women/quilts of the civil war.|
|This basket quilt was awesome. It was in such great shape it was kind of strange. |
It was like someone had just made it yesterday and washed it once in warm water.
