Trip to Gems of the Prairie, Peoria

It’s been a month since i visited the Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild in Peoria. I’ve finally had my blogging lesson, so now I can get on with it…

First I have to say a big thank you to all those Peorian quilters who made me feel so welcome. They laughed at my jokes and said all the right things about my quilts. I got to share some of the “lessons I have learnt while quilting” and then teach an embellishment class.

Here are some pictures of the ladies hard at work…










We made yo-yos, learnt some embroidery stitches and added beaded edges to our little samplers. Three hours passed very quickly but I hope everyone learnt something new and has some fun show-and-tell next month at their guild meeting.

Sue Wozniak was a wonderful hostess. If all my trips are as enjoyable as this one I’m going to be OK…
