Illinois Valley Quilters' Guild

Where Illinois Valley quilters come to learn, build friendships, and have fun!


2017 Quilt Challenge

The quilt challenge for 2016-2017 will be: "I've Got the Blues."

Put on your thinking caps and create a quilt using I've Got the Blues as a theme. The quilt should measure no more than 36" x 36". Those are the only rules! Let's get creative!

The challenge quilt is due at the August 2017 Installation of Officers meeting.

2017 Spring Retreat Challenge

12”-18” quilt featuring a block pattern beginning with the initial of your first name, and a color beginning with your last name’s initial. (Example: Shelley Serby-Shoefly, Salmon)

Block Lotto

Every month we will have a Block Lotto! A new block pattern will be presented at the meeting with certain guidelines. Guild members will construct up to five (5) of these blocks for the next meeting. Each block they bring, along with $1 per block, is an entry into the Block Lotto. The name drawn will receive all of the blocks! Please see the meeting calendar for the next month's block pattern!
