Welcome Quilters

The Northern Lake County Quilters Guild (NLCQG) is an organization of enthusiastic quilters from northeast Illinois and southeast Wisconsin. We meet monthly in the Antioch, Illinois Township Center.  In addition, we have workshops presented by nationally known teachers, special events such as local shop hops and UFO days where we gather to work on our unfinished or charity projects.  If you enjoy quilting, we hope you will consider joining our guild! Learn more about our upcoming events by reading our blog.

  • 2016 Quilt Show

    We thank everyone who contributed to the success of the 2016 show. Members entered their quilts, made items for the silent auction, and contributed fabric for scrap bags. They set up on Friday, staffed booths Saturday and Sunday, and cleaned up (in record time) Sunday afternoon. (Husbands and sons were a great help, too.) We are grateful to the many people who came to see the show. You admired our creations, bid at the silent auction, got scrap bag bargains, and bought raffle tickets. We appreciate your support!
