Members and friends, welcome to our website! We are a vibrant, friendly and varied group of almost 200 quilters and quilt artists who have been sharing quilts, talent and camaraderie since 1981. There are monthly meetings, most of them with special speakers, quilt related activities, and show and tell. We have quilt shows every other year, and lots of quilt-ins, challenges, round robins, and community service projects, along with an impressive library for our members - something for everyone! As you navigate this website, you will see some of our work, check out our schedule, and share our accomplishments. If you are interested in quilting, please join us the first Thursday of the month for our Guild Meeting. We love to meet visitors and will make you feel at home!

Barbara Eikmeier: Sashing Solutions

We had a great meeting with Barbara Eikmeier, who gave her program "It's All in the Sashing" -- in which she starts off with simple types of sashing and works her way through to a wide variety of sashing solutions.  If you are looking to lighten up a set of blocks that feel heavy, make a random set of blocks live together in harmony, or produce interesting secondary patterns, there is a sashing method to suit!  Eikmeier teaches these skills in a Craftsy class, and she is also planning a book.

Barbara also turned out to be a local!  Although she is now based in Kansas City, she grew up in Willows and actually co-owns the Quilt Corral.  Check out her designs at her website, Barb's Favorites.
