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!

October Meeting: Roberta James

  The ASQG October meeting is on Thursday the 7th, at the Family Masonic Center at 7pm; doors open at 6:30.

 Speaker Roberta James will be coming to us from Colusa.  She is a landscape and art quilter, and will be showing off many of her works.  Roberta has over 30 years of experience in teaching, and she is passionate about learning, creating art, and inspiring students to develop in their own artistic style.   Earlier this year, she organized Colusa's spring community event, "Quilt Around the Block," which showed off about 200 quilts.

September Meeting: Barbara Eikmeier

 The ASQG March meeting is on Thursday, September 2, at the Family Masonic Center at 7pm; doors open at 6:30.

 Speaker Barbara Eikmeier will be coming to us from Kansas. She is a quilt designer, teacher and author. She makes traditional-style quilts and is the sister-in-law of Carol at the Quilt Corral in Willows, CA.

Barbara learned to sew in 4-H and made her first quilt while in high school, but didn't start quilting seriously until after her marriage in 1984. She has been teaching quilting since 1990, and her favorite technique is applique. She is married to a military man, so quilting became her portable career as they moved around the country and to South Korea for military assignments. 

Barbara is the mother of two, grandmother of one, and author of four quilting books. She is a fabric designer for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, a pattern designer, a Craftsy instructor, and she presents programs and workshops to guilds around the country. Barbara lives in Lansing, Kansas with her husband and two dogs where, in addition to quilting, she enjoys flower gardening, baking pies, writing, and sailing on their vintage sailboat at nearby Perry Lake.  

Barbara's lecture will be on “The Random Block Sampler.”


Barbara will be teaching a companion workshop Friday September 3d, 2021.
Time: 9:30 – 4:00
Price: $35.00 per person
 

In the 6-hour class students will learn ideas and techniques to make units or blocks for those odd spaces that occur when combining blocks of different sizes. In the first half of the class, we will use The Magic Triangle Ruler (available from the instructor) to make Shaded Four Patch, Birds in the Air, Quarter Square Triangles, Half Square Triangles, and Double Hourglass units. Using the ruler for trimming and marking will also be covered. In the second half of the class, students will use their own collection of random sized blocks and begin planning their own quilt. Using Barb’s simple matrix in combination with the techniques learned in the morning, everyone will make a unique, one of a kind quilt.
For more information or to sign up, contact Jill Ramsey at 530-514-5750.
