Welcome Quilters

The Northern Lake County Quilters Guild (NLCQG) is an organization of enthusiastic quilters from northeast Illinois and southeast Wisconsin. We meet monthly at the Antioch, Illinois Township Center where we offer a variety of programs and socialization activities. In addition, we have classes presented by our members as well as nationally known teachers, activities such as swaps and UFO sewing days, and yearly challenges where we stretch our quilting skills. Whether you’re an experienced quilter or you’re new to the craft, we’d love to have you join us as we explore the art and education of quilting.

Ornament of the Month Resumes in 2024

Our 2023 Ornament of The Month Christmas tree won third prize at the Kringle’s Christmas Village display in Antioch!  From the cash prize won, we will be funding two decorated trees this coming holiday season.  More information is available under: Ornament of the Month 2024

Date & Time Change for July!

Due to our location change (and the fact that many of you would like to enjoy a fireworks celebration on the 3rd) we will be pushing the July guild meeting back one week.  Mark your calendars to celebrate with BINGO and ice cream at the Lake Villa Library on July 10th from 6:30 – 8:30!

Bingo in July

Our July meeting will include not only our traditional ice cream social, but we will also be surrounded by mystery quilts while playing Quilter’s BINGO!

Mystery Quilt

Many thanks to everyone in the guild who participated in the 2024 mystery quilt.  The plan is to have racks up to display these at our July meeting and be surrounded by quilts as we play bingo and eat ice cream.  Plan on bringing your completed quilt (or quilt top) in July and share it with the guild!
