The raffle quilt will be made up of strip pieced blocks edged in black. Members are needed to piece blocks using 13 9x1 inch strips. Use 1/4" seam. Do not trim the block! A sample is shown to the right. All colors and fabric designs are welcome. Contact Kathy Lake firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Interested members can participate in a 6 installment project using multiple sewing, fiber manipulation and embellishment techniques to create one of a kind wall hanging. Kits will be available.
Do you have a UFO you haven't finished because it is just too ugly? Well 2023 is its time to shine! Finish it before the November meeting and you can win prizes and bragging rights in the Ugliest Quilt Contest. Entries must be quilted and bound to be entered. More details to come.
The 3rd ELIQG Camp DeWolf retreat has been scheduled. Deposit of $150 will be accepted at the April meeting. Currently only Day Tripper spots are available. Space is limited, so pay now to secure your spot.
2023 was a rousing success. Many amazing projects were finished, much delicious food was eaten and many laughs were had by all as you can see from the slide show below. Visit the Guild Events page to see individual photos.
Several guild board positions are open due to term limits. Maybe you or one of your friends has the passion and skills to fill one of these open slots and make 2024 a spectacular year for ELIQG. Speak to any board member if you are interested.
