The public is invited to attend the monthly meeting of the Pratt Area Quilt Guild at 7 p.m. Monday, March 18 at the Senior Center, 619 N. Main. Toni Steere from Wing and a Prayer Designs will present a lecture, "From Concept to Quilt," covering the steps from the time a concept for a fabric collection is born, through the process of designing the fabric, and finally making the quilt or project. She will bring quilt items for sale.

Steere formed the design company in 2007, in partnership with Jenny Folt. Both have a love of color, fabric and quilting. Toni, with an empty nest, is able to be out and about and Jenny, with a full nest of three boys, works from home in technical layout and original artwork.

Steere owned and operated Prairie Pieces Quilt Shop in Council Grove for 16 years before selling the business in 2006. In addition to her work with Wing and a Prayer Design, she also sells fabric for several national companies.
