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.

Pledge to Complete UFOs

Many of us donated UFOs for the Holiday raffle and lightened our load. But also, many of us gained UFOs from winning(?) at the Holiday raffle. Join our 2024 UFO (Unfinished Objects) Challenge by pledging to finish some of these up by using UFOs from 2023 or older! …

Mystery Quilt

Our 2nd annual guild mystery quilt will start in February of 2024! The announcement flyer is attached to the December 2023 Newsletter (click here).

Once a week, for 9 weeks this winter, our guild will be releasing clues via email for an intriguing, pieced quilt pattern that is perfect for beginners, but also has enough options to interest the experienced quilter. This year’s finished quilt is designed to be 52” x 52” but there will be instructions included to make it smaller or larger. Sign up starts by emailing mystery@nlcqg.org. Looking forward to quilting along with everyone this winter.
