Calhoun County Quilt Show

I did the quilt show again this year on October 19th. It was not a nice day weather wise as it was cold and cloudy and raining but that never stops a quilter does it. Here as some pics of the quilts : Calhoun County, like Jo Daviess County in northwest Illinois, is unique in the state in that glaciers didn’t touch it and therefore has a more rugged terrain that is dissected by valleys than the generally flat terrain associated with the rest of Illinois. Calhoun County is also located at the tip of the peninsula formed by the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers and is almost completely surrounded by water. Often referred to as the ‘Kingdom’, Calhoun County is sparsely populated with only 5 incorporated towns
