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.



  • In Person Meetings began September 1st

    We are now meeting in person at the Antioch Township Center. The Center is a government building. Masks are required.

    Our January and February meetings will be via Zoom so weather will not be an issue.

  • Challenge Quilt Results
    We would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Challenge Quilt. The challenge was to make a quilt using the colors of your birthstone and birth month flower. It was amazing to see all the different interpretations of the challenge.
    Congratulations to this year’s winners:

    1st Place – April – Daisy, pink & purple

    2nd Place – May – Lily of the Valley, emerald & white

    3rd Place – January – Carnation, red, pink, & white

    We look forward to seeing all the quilts displayed at next year’s Quilt Show!
  • New Accuquilt Die Library

    NLCQG has a new Accuquilt die library. Accuquilt dies are available for check out at every guild meeting or can be requested ahead of time by contacting the guild librarian at library@nlcqg.org.  More information is available on the Member’s Corner page.
