  • Additional dates (more information to come) are June 8th & 9th and June 28th & 29th so mark your calendars!

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!

May Block of the Month – #9

Summer is almost here and the spring air is warming up quickly! What better way to stay cool than to have a beautiful fan! This Applique block is sure to kick your quilt up a notch! The Circus tent tends to be warm so get your fan ready for a cool breeze while the acrobats show off their skills! Enjoy this easy block!

Note:  Block of the month ends in August.

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!
