Our friends at Threads of Time quilt center in Danville, IL are planning an exhibition of quilts that be on display from April 1-30, 2016. The pieces submitted will be fabric based and feature the theme of "Nature", but may feature non fabric embellishments. Dimensions are 12"-16" wide by 60"-72" high and need to have a rod pocket or hanging tabs on the back. The pieces will be displayed so that both front and back will be visible to visitors to the exhibition. Deadline for submission is 3:00 PM Saturday, March 26. There is no entry fee. For more information, download the flyer below.

Members approved the purchase of a portable design wall for the Lakeside Quilting Guild at the January meeting. The wall is 72” X 72” when assembled and is preshrunk 100% cotton flannel with no seams or obstructions. Easily assembled, this wall is fully portable and collapses down to 5x5x22 inches and weighs less than 7 pounds. Fabric pieces adhere without pinning, allowing easy changes to a design.

The show will feature over 200 unique modern and vintage quilts created by a diverse group of quilters from our community and beyond. In addition to the primary display, there will be a grouping of challenge quilts which all feature the same two fabrics but interpreted in creative ways by each quilter. Each visitor will receive a free catalog describing all quilts, find quilts and other fabric arts pieces for sale, be able to shop with quilt store and other vendors, and enter drawings for quilted items and gift baskets.
The event will again feature a tea room, with a coffee bar on Friday offering light afternoon refreshments and on Saturday adding the option for a light, delicious homemade lunch in a relaxed atmosphere and surrounded by beautiful quilts on display. Admission will again be $6 at the door with proceeds for pipe organ and capital fund.
