In June, NILAG was pleased to present Julie Lillo. https://www.facebook.com/julie.lillo
Julie is a local area quilter that kept us busy with her "top 40 Freehand Overalls" We spent a beautiful June morning, drawing swirls, pebbles, and branching designs.
The Skill Builder for June was feathers around applique.
And of course there was plenty of show and tell
The April 2015 meeting brought us Patricia Simons from Quilters Rule http://www.quiltersrule.com/
Patricia gave a hands-on drawing demo using longarm templates and rulers. We learned how to use simple shapes to create a large number of quilting designs. Some of what Patricia covered can be seen on her YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/QuiltersRuleIntl
On February 7, 2015 members of NILAG (the Northern Illinois Longarm Guild) came together for a "Share it Saturday". Members that attended the Machine Quilters Exposition (MQX) that was held in September 2014, shared what information about their favorite LongArm instructors. There was also lots of show and tell.
