I blame Su!!! I just ordered some EPP papers for a 8" star.... good thing I am going to a fun quilt store to find fun fabric!!! How I just need to read the directions for what I need to get done!
Thank you everyone who joined us this weekend for the virtual retreat. It was a blast!!!!! Let's post what we accomplished!!!
Tomorrow is National Quilting day! Saturday, March 20 is National Quilting Day – for lighthouse quilt guild members it's a day to get together and sew to our hearts content!

Since we can't be together face-to-face, let's do a Stay-at-Home-Quilting day while we visit in a zoom room. Information on zoom room is in an email from the guild. Get a project ready, pull some fabric off the shelf, get your meals planned for the day, and fill you bobbins.

Now sing it with me.

“Let’s get together, yeah, yeah, yeah”

Let’s get together to have a sewing good time!

See you Saturday morning at 9:00 am, the official start of the day is at 9:15. You can sew in you PJ's or other comfy clothes, just remember, if your video is on we can see you.
I am having a huge wool sale at my shop (13650 - 172nd Ave in Grand Haven) this week. Thursday- Saturday, if you need wool for that special appliqué project or you hook you won’t want to miss it!! If you have questions you can txt or call me at 616-566-1144 or PM me.

I have 2 fairly large pieces of good quality fabric left over from pillows made for me. I do not sew and do not want to just throw it away. Any one interested. One is khaki and the other is a burnt orange color. I wouldbe glad to do a porch drop off.
Does anyone have a good face mask pattern? I need one without elastic, with ties. There at so many patterns so wondering which ones you like most!
Hello everyone. I do not quilt or sew, but I am looking for some help from people who do! My mom was an excellent seamstress, but unfortunately, she passed away last month and left an extensive collection of fabric, sewing supplies, and a very nice sewing machine and serger. I would like to see these items go to someone who could make good use of them, as well as ensure that my dad gets a fair price for the machines. I really have no clue about where I should advertise these items, so if anyone has any ideas, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

Coopersville Farm Museum would like to invite members of the Lighthouse Quilt Guild to share their quilts in the upcoming exhibit of “Quilts and Their Stories”. The Director’s Choice is Star Quilts. These will be featured, but all quilts will be displayed. Sleeves basted on the back makes them show better. Due July 2-13, 2019. T/T/S 10am-4pm
Greetings! I am working up product for quilt shows that I am vending at... for hookers I sell the wool by 1/2, 1/4, & 1/8 yards. But thinking that it would be fun to do some colored bundles or packets for the appliqué's - wondering what sizes of fabric, numbers of pieces so number of colors in a group? was thinking smaller pieces about 8" x 10" and groups of 5? and the cost of hand dyed wool is $28 a half yard - so ... any advice and guidance from you all would be greatly appreciated. In the dye pots today gearing up for Spring shows! Let me know if you want to come visit "The Corner" going to be there today from 2:00 - 6:00. Chris

Join us every 2nd Monday of the Month at the United Church of the Dunes in Grand Haven, Michigan. Our Social Time begins at 6:30 and our Meeting starts at 7:00 p.m.

The LQG meets the 2nd Monday of every month at the United Methodist Church of the Dunes in Grand Haven, MI. Our guild has blossomed into an eclectic group that ranges from traditional to experimental ... from piecing commercial patterns to bringing our own designs to life ... from quilting as personal therapy to making quilts to heal others. Our common thread is the desire to come together to learn and grown in quilting and fiber arts. We bring in top name instructors and teach each other. We hold working meetings for charity and occasionally break bread together. We show off the fruits of our labors, and support each other toward turning our UnFinished Objects into show pieces. In fact, our annual quilt show draws in visitors from all corners to our beautiful resort community.

Operating as usual

[03/24/21]   What is a Batik?
A batik (buh-teek) is an Indonesian wax-resist dyeing technique in which wax is applied to fabric in specific areas, whether by hand or with a copper stamp. When the wax hardens, the fabric is submerged in dye - a process that can involve several dippings, dryings, and colors! The fabric is then boiled to remove the wax, revealing areas untouched by dye. Then the process starts again!

This technique creates fabric that appears cracked, marbled, and perfectly imperfect. Every yard is vibrant and always unique, each slightly different than the last thanks to the hand of a skilled artisan

Received the most beautiful and unique get well card yesterday from one of our program leaders Wendy Rice! So creative, by far my favorite card yet! Also, I can not thank everyone enough who has sent me get well cards over the past 2 weeks. I have received overwhelming love and prayers from our guild members and am truly touched by the support. Healing is going as best it can for me being an inpatient person! Below is just some of the cards that both myself and Marianne Stuparits have received (Mariannes cards from her heart attack just 2 weeks before my accident)

We painted a lot of fabric pieces in Nancy's class. Anxious to see what everyone will make out of them.

02/06/2021

We had a wonderful Zoom presentation from Nancy Roelfsema on Jan. 11, 2021. Nancy did a trunk show of her past and present quilts and a little history of her family. Very interesting. Nancy has lots of video tutorials on You Tube. check out her videos and information at:

She then talked about Creative Painting on Fabric, in preparation for our class on Jan. 27. Pictures in another post.

From our member Cyndi Jones Phillip....
"Today I made a project from the weekly “Sweet and Simple” 6 project classes with Barb Lewis at My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe. It is a cover for a Composition Book with a zipper pocket on the top. It coordinates with the fold away bag I made last week.
Love the online classes offered at this shop. Barb is a great teacher. They record the classes and send you a replay. Very handy. Barb is already working on her next set of classes. They even offer children’s classes. "

Bloom Challenge Reveal 200 09/15/2020

Bloom Challenge Reveal 200

Carol Keen and Jackie Fisher challenged the members of Lighthouse Quilt Guild to make a small wall hanging or table topper with two fat quarters provided by another member in a blind exchange. No one knew who had their fabric until the day of the reveal. Many had not remembered what theirs was since it had been many months since the challenge was launched. 21 members made a quilt of their own design or from a pattern and gifted it back to the person whose fabric they had. There were many happy smiles and surprises! Check out all these blooms and smiles!

[04/10/20]   WORDS OF WISDOM ON GETTING THROUGH EACH DAY
FROM ELIZABETH AND WHAT SHE DOES.

I talk on the phone a lot with local friends and my old pals around the country. It helps. I have a 4-point program
for fighting this crisis: 1) Get outside for a walk or just some fresh air; 2) Bake something not only for the
product, but also for the fragrance; 3) Have long talks with friends; and 4) Get out of your bra [in the 60's we
burned them] and feel free.

Anyone else have any tidbits to add, please let us know so we can post.
