…last weekend was super fun! The Park Forest folks at Tallgrass Arts are super sweet and very into art. It was lovely to meet the curator and other leaders in the organization after a year working with them from afar.

Members of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild (CMQG) showed up in full force on Saturday for the artist talks and then took us out for lunch. We missed out on deep dish, but the pizza was still good. These are some wonderful quilters and I wish I lived close enough to become one of them. Thanks, friends!

The trip ended with flight cancellations due to a monster storm, but that’s the kind of delay one can understand…for safety. Although the Chicago trip was better than expected, it’s great to be back in the groove at home and plotting the next thing.

Here are some photos from the show. A couple of quilts in the shots are new. Will post them in usual style later on.
