 Welcome to the Lakeview Quilters Guild Website

Lakeview Quilters Guild invites you to join us on the third Monday of every  month.  We are a Houston/Bay Area guild and we welcome quilters of all ages and experience levels.  Throughout the year, we host nationally-known speakers and offer a variety of programs, workshops, quilt-ins, retreats, and opportunities for community service.  We encourage you to join us in our love of quilts and quilt-making.

The Quilt Show is Coming! 
Friday/Saturday, May 16-17 at Victory Camp - 1407 Victory Lane, Alvin, off of FM 518
                                              
Our 2014 quilt show theme is "Legacy of Love" -- which is a perfect prelude to all of us sharing our love of quilting.  The show will open on May 15 (members only evening) and close on May 17. 

If you're not a guild member...
we hope you'll drop by our show and see some gorgeous quilts
and visit the booths of all of our vendors. 

If you are a guild member... we also welcome your visit -
and hope you will let Marci H or Jann D know where you
would like to help with the show.  Browse through the
Show Guide to see where we need volunteers.

Let your friends know about our quilt show. 
You can post the show poster in your office or community!

Lottery Blocks  The April lottery block is called Shooting Star.  Click here for the instructions on how to make it.  If you want a head start on the May block ("Thrift"), the instructions are here How does the lottery work?  Make two blocks.  One is for the lottery; the other is for the guild's August 2014 auction.  For each two blocks you make, you get  one chance to win all the blocks in the lottery set.  The more you make, the greater your chance to win - and the guild's share of block-sets bring in auction income that helps pay for our programs.

The Stars are all in Alignment!!  And you can get in line too....
JSC astronaut Karen Nyberg is onboard the International Space Station and has assembled a star block while in space.  Wow!  Next year, the block will be on display as part of a star-themed quilt at the Houston Quilt Festival's 40th anniversary show.  What an "out of this world way to celebrate!"  You can participate in this project by submitting your own 9-1/2" (unfinished size) block.  For more info, click here.
