Welcome To CLMQG

Hello and welcome to the Crystal Lake Modern Quilt Guild in Northern Illinois!
As a new guild, we will be working over the next couple of months to develop a place for the local modern quilters to come together, share their work, inspire each other and learn new things.

What is modern quilting, you ask? Modern quilting is a new twist on traditional quilting! Take a traditional block and use modern fabrics. Today there seems to be an abundant selection of new fabrics for us to create with. Change the scale and dimensions of a block. Make it wonky or create your own! You're the artist.

Look for us soon on FaceBook, Twitter, and Flickr. Drop us a note on any of these social sites. We encourage anyone who is interested to join us. Beginners are welcome! We'd love to hear from you!
