A 'Barrow' of fun and knowledge at Quilter's Garden

Well-known quilter Jodi Barrows (center) of Keller, Texas, made a stop at Quilter’s Garden in downtown Princeton on Thursday to share her talent and stories and discuss her own unique square in a square quilting technique with fellow quilters. Barrows is the author of 24 books (10 of which have been on the best seller’s list), four novels and has produced four tools, two video/DVDs and five teacher’s books. Pictured with Barrows are store owners Carol Keller (left) and Beth Rosene. The event attracted about 70 women from all around Bureau County, the Peoria area and Quad Cities.
