My husband found this ad and brought it home for me. The Quiltmakers of Kankakee (Illinois) are presenting a quilt show titled Autumn Splendor 2012 at the Kankakee County Fairgrounds' Expo Center.

I love to go to quilt shows. Looking at the beautiful quilts gives me inspiration. I have great fun with the silent auctions and feel like purchasing raffle tickets not only gives me a chance to win a beautiful new quilt but also helps support the organization. The vendors.......oh boy......the vendors......I looooove the vendors. They always have new and interesting tools, notions, patterns and fabrics for me to drool over and purchase.
