A beautiful fall day in Calhoun County .......

On October 22nd, a friend and I went to a quilt show in Calhoun County Illinois. The show was spread out among five small towns at various churches in Calhoun County. It was a beautiful fall day for a drive up the Great River Road which runs along the Mississippi River. The small churches were lovely and the ages of the quilts spand well over 100 years old to modern.
