Yesterday DH and I went to Clifton for the Norwegian Country Christmas Tour. The tour included a quilt show, some decorated homes and a historic house and church. Since my ancestors are from Norway, anything about Norwegians coming to the USA is interesting to me. My relatives settled in Minnesota and Chicago.
The quilt show was small, but there were some beautiful quilts there. No names of makers were given, but I especially liked these three.
The Ringness House Museum is a partially restored house built in 1859.
