Join us for on Wednesday, June 5th, at the Antioch Township Center. Doors open at 6:00 PM for fellowship, questions, and quilting help. Meeting starts at 7:00 PM. 

Tonight’s speaker will be Vicki Hodge. Vicki has been designing and piecing reproduction scrap quilts for over 40 years. An accumulation of unquilted tops naturally lead to pairing two tops into one quilt – equally interesting on front and back.  Vicki teamed with Quiltmania Editions to publish ‘Button Box Quilts’ in September, 2018. The book includes 20 designs (10 quilts) inspired by 19th century patterns.

Vicki has exhibited quilts at the Pour l’Amour du Fil show in Nantes, France; the Paducah Quilt Week Show in Paducah, Kentucky; and ‘In the American Tradition’ exhibit at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas. Her AQSG Civil War Quilt Study quilt was selected to travel to several locations over four years.

The guild program trunk show includes quilts included in the book and those that didn’t make the cut.  Discussion of her quilting process is included along the way

The June meeting will also feature the Illinois Quilters Inc., annual raffle quilt.  They will be selling tickets for a chance to win this beautiful quilt.  This quilt will go on to be displayed as part of the Fine Art Fiber Show held at the Chicago Botanical Garden in November.
