 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.

~ Below, you will find our latest news ~

Don't forget...
President Georgann has challenged the guild to make 500 community service quilts in 2014.  To reach this goal, we all need to sew, sew, sew!  Consider making a quilt top - or quilting a top - or binding a quilt this week.  Check out the community service table in September.  Our quilts support many challenged women, soldiers, and families.  Please help...

THANKS EVERYONE!!!

The auction is history... and thanks are due to Holly C for organizing it along with her team of cohorts.  Thanks are also due to the donors who provided items for the auction - our guild members, friends, Alvin Sew & Vac, and others.  And many thanks to all of you who came with your pocketbook and took home special goodies that caught your eye.  We all had a fun, crazy, wild night!


For those attending the Sally Collins workshop:
Please note that the Sally Collins workshop location
is different than our usual meeting place.  Check the calendar for details.
 

Lottery Blocks  
The September lottery block is a Triple Four-Patch block.  Click here for the instructions on how to make it the block.  The instructions for the October lottery block are also available; click here for instructions on how to make October's Halloween Box Kite block. 
     How does the lottery block system work?  Make two blocks.  O
ne is for the lottery; the other is used in the guild's annual 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. 

Community Service Quilts
If you are interested in making a community service quilt, click here to check out our Community Service page.  Scroll down for a list of suggested sizes of quilts.  A multitude of kits are available at each guild meeting for cutting squares, piecing squares, quilting, and/or binding.  You don't have to do everything -- every little bit helps in the making of these heartfelt gifts to people in our community who are dealing with unique challenges.
