    I managed to get to the show put on by Gems of the Prairie Quilt Guild of Peoria, IL, about an hour from home. It was a really nice show, over 500 items on display and a great selection of vendors. They held it at the Avanti Dome in Pekin, which is a sports arena. This was a great venue--huge and open, airy, good light, and fake turf flooring was easier on the feet than concrete after walking for hours looking at all the eye candy.

    The view when you walked in...this was the right half of the arena, quilts to the left also!

    I WAS THERE, TOO! My hubby and I got there around 11:30. It was a GREAT venue! So much room. We both decided it would be super if they did that in Paducah. LOL

    I loved all the quilts, and there were a few quilt shops that I visit often, so i got to say hello to them. They always see my hubby first. Camo hat, camo shirt, and tan shorts. He always treats the voting on your favorite quilts like a test. The big stinker only told me a couple he voted for. lol

    I think this will be a yearly show for us. AND I didn't even buy anything! I was so proud of myself since we will be going to Des Moines this week.

    I got there just at noon. I think I saw your hubby! Sorry, I didn't notice who was with him! I only bought one yard of fabric as I'm going on the shop hop on Oct. 8 (Springfield/Bloomington/Peoria area). I don't need much right now, so if I want to spend in two weeks I need to pace myself.

    I wish I had made this but I didn't...it was titled "My Stained Glass Garden." The quilter had quite a story about how she started it years ago while living in Florida and it got lost when she moved to Illinois. Earlier this year it turned up in a box and she finally finished.
