CAMEO Quilters Guild
...Come And Meet Each Other...

Welcome to CAMEO Quilters Guild Website! 

Since 1994 CAMEO Quilters Guild has been committed to a variety of quilting activities.  We promote the appreciation and knowledge of quilting techniques, textiles, history and quiltmakers to the general public. The guild members share time and talents in service to our communities.  

Through guild meetings we experience travel and fellowship, preserve and promote the tradition, culture, and history of quilt-making, and foster good friendship among persons interested in the art of quilting. Our website is to make the Guild information available to current members and guests.  
We are welcoming new members, please visit our Forms page for an application or visitors are welcome, we charge a fee of $5 for regular meetings and $10 if we have a special program speaker.

Our next meeting is:
October 15, 2015 

Our Speaker will be Monique Dillard
 "My Quilting Journey" Trunk Show

    Guest fees $10 

Monique Dillard will join us and present her lecture “How to Design Fabric and Books – How is That Done”.  She will walk us through the steps of fabric design from the idea to the finished product.  Monique will also be bringing her new line of fabrics so we can get a sneak peak. 
On Saturday (October 17th) she will teach her Black Pearl Quilt.  This lap size quilt finishes to 54” by 68”.  This quilt only takes 5 fabrics, a dark solid, three medium value prints that coordinate with the solid, and a cream or white for background.  While Monique’s quilt is in black, you can use any color. If making a the entire quilt is not what you want to do, you could break down the blocks and so a single one for a candle mat, three blocks for a table runner, or four blocks to make a wall hanging. 

There is pre-workshop cutting to do so don’t wait too long to sign up.   Cost of the workshop is $40 for members, $50 for non-members and $8 for the pattern available from Monique at the workshop. 

Monique Dillard was born in Winnipeg Manitoba and now lives in Rockford IL.
  Not only does she teach nationally, she owns her business – Open Gate, she is a fabric designer (Olde World Style with Maywood Studio, co-author of 3 books, has developed 3 rulers for quilters and teaches online classes on Craftsy
