Events

Gain a front-row seat to all the stories, comments and jokes when our speakers present, as well as the artwork, quilts and insights explaining their creative processes. It’s fascinating!

Our guild hosts numerous events yearly, with visitors are welcome as space permits. Events are casual; members come with projects to share and questions to ask one another. Photos are usually allowed, and a question-and-answer session ends the lecture. Often a display table with the speaker’s supplies, materials, CDs and books is available during the meeting.
IQI meetings are at 7pm on the first Thursday evening of most months and feature presentations on a wide variety of quilt topics. Workshops may follow presentations on subsequent days.
Our programs are held at Lutheran Church of the Ascension, 460 Sunset Ridge Road, Northfield, IL, at 7 pm. Workshops are at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 1133 Pfingsten Road, Northbrook.

Meeting and

Challenge Quilt

The Challenge Quilt is an event offered to the membership yearly: One or two members create a challenge for members to participate in, with the specifics of fabric, size, theme and techniques pre-determined.
At the August and September meeting, members often purchase fabric packs for a minimal amount of $10.00 and then have until the June meeting to complete the challenge. The fun is seeing the variety of responses to the original challenge! Challenge Quilts are displayed as a group at the Fine Art of Fiber each fall.
Service Days
All IQI members are required to participate in service to the guild. Besides the Fine Art of Fiber quilt show, and sewing the Raffle Quilt, this means quilting projects for preemie babies, children and teens. Area hospitals neonatal ICU’s receive the premie quilts and DCFS the child and teen size quilts.
Contrary to the term, “service days” are actually fun and friendly — we’re an easy-going group and would love to have you join us.
There are only two rules: your project must be service-related, and as much as possible, please bring your own sewing machine and basic supplies. And if you have any extra, we’re also always in need of “kid” fabrics, especially for boys (…but nothing scary or violent). Of course, we’ll have irons and boards available and usually we have a large cutting board available.
We usually have quilts ready to be quilted and some for piecing. Some “quilt kits” are available for home sewing and are collected at our monthly meetings. Pack or buy your lunch; tea and coffee are provided.
Any questions? Email either Lynn Bradburn at lynn.bradburn@gmail.com or Diana Burrows at ddburrows@hotmail.com. Service days run from the Fall to Spring; see our dates above.
The 2019 IQI Raffle Quilt
The 2019 IQI Raffle Quilt
Raffle Tickets for the 2019 Raffle Quilt (“Liberty and Dots for All”) will be on sale until 3:45pm, Sunday, November 10th at the Fine Art of Fiber, held at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Tickets are $1.00 per ticket or six tickets for $5.00, and cash or checks are accepted. We need your cell phone number on the ticket stub that goes into the drawing, which will be held at 4pm, on November 10th. The winner need not be present, and if there’s an absentee winner, that lucky person will be called and arrangements made to deliver the quilt.
Thanks for your support! All Raffle Quilt proceeds are used to cover our program costs in the next year. This is a vital effort, and a creative expression of our guild.

Close-up of sewing machine needle
Confused about what needle to use? What do all those numbers mean on the needle package? Is changing the needle really important before it breaks? Successful sewing is often about paying attention to the little things – like the needle in your sewing machine. Get the low-down about how this little piece of steel can solve some very BIG problems, including broken threads, skipped stitches and puckered fabrics. Your sewing machine is an investment and protection begins by using the very best needle.

Suzi Parron’s interest in quilting history led to her fascination with barn quilts, which she discovered on a cross-country camping trip in 2008. A high-school English teacher, Suzi spent two years documenting the barn quilt movement, traveling to 29 states, gathering stories of these painted quilt patterns and their ties to family and tradition. Suzi now travels the country in an RV to lecture and lead workshops on barn quilt painting, which has added over three thousand quilt blocks to the landscape, from California to Massachusetts.
