On my recent trip to Chicago, I spent 2 days in the Windy City visiting my oldest and best girl friends of 25+ years. We get together every year around the holidays (quite late this year) to celebrate our friendship by drinking a lot of champagne and eating and catching up.
This year we visited one of my favorite places the Art Institute of Chicago.
Here are some of my favorite things:
These are the Thorne Rooms which are miniature studies of various periods of interior design.
They are displayed as individual viewing boxes. It's easy to forget these are miniature.
These are views from the new Modern Wing - my home city, isn't she nice?
I thought these were quilt worthy. Maybe applique'?
I loved this clock and doggie -
And finally - 1 quilt on display - nice
I'll have quilts to share next time and my favorite quilt shop!
