2022 Northland Needlers Quilt Show

Sept 16th - 17th

Hillside Christian Church

900 NE Vivion Road

Kansas City, MO

Every year, the Nitetime Needlers join with sister guild Northland Quilters Guild to put on a comprehensive Quilt Show. The show features:

  • Over 100 member-made quilts on display
  • A themed special exhibit with more quilts
  • Many vendors with fabrics, notions and services
  • Bazaar with gently used, frugally priced items
  • Door prize chances with entry and every purchase

Members from both guilds meet for eight months to plan and execute this show, which is attended by many the third Friday and Saturday of September.

It takes a large room to hang all the quilts! Visitors enjoy seeing a variety of sizes and styles.

All are welcome at our quilt show. We place signs outside the church as well as posting on social media.

Our vendors bring a nice selection of quilting supplies for inspiration and shopping opportunities.

Roberta Wakefield coordinated this Special Exhibit of Red and White quilts called “En Rouge”.

Viewers vote for their favorite quilts. Marci Hainkel won Best of show for her vibrant crazy quilt.

September 2022 Program

Four of our members volunteered to give a mini presentation at our September “Schoolhouse” meeting. Coordinated by Vice-president of Programs Cheryl Baird, each member shared a quilting method or design ideas.

Cheryl Baird watches as Doris Falcone describes how she rescues and creatively uses orphan blocks.

Dianna Davis showed us how to use an Accuquilt Cutter and sewing methods to make blocks with curved seams.

Phyllis Carlyle demonstrated using rulers and other tools to obtain more accurately sized quilt blocks.

Lisa Morrow-Welch shared many beautiful quilts featuring Twilling and showed us how she does this type of handwork.

August 2022 Program

Reeze Hanson gave a very informative talk on sacred geometry and using it to design quilts.

One of the many stunning examples shared by Reeze Hanson.

July 2022 Program

Our July meeting featured our own member Jane Bromberg on “Finishing up”. She presented some alternatives to using binding.

June 2022 Program

For our June program “If Only These Quilts Could Talk”, Chris Campbell shared her skills in rescuing and resurrecting vintage and antique quilts. She had many intriguing stories of how she obtained finished quilts, tops and blocks for the past few decades. In many cases, she saved quilt parts from being thrown away. If only the original makers could know how much their work is cherished!

May 2022 Program

Our May 2022 meeting was particularly interesting, with Amy Barickman presenting the history of her business: Indygo Junction patterns and Modern Vintage Makers. 

Her presentation detailing her journey in creating and publishing many books, patterns, and classes related to the sewing arts was fascinating.

April 2022 Program

At our April meeting, Klonda Holt shared her prolific quilt making output during a trunk show called "A few of my favorite things.” We enjoyed seeing many wonderful quilts including “Big Foot” and several one block wonders.

February 2022 Program

Our February 2022 program featured Theresa Ward on "Challenges, swaps and exchanges. During her twenty years in the Sunflower Piecemakers Guild in Leavenworth she has made many wonderful quilts which gave us multiple ideas for future guild projects.

January 2022 Meeting

During 2020 and 2021, we held a Get ‘er Done Challenge. Each participant submitted a list of projects they wanted to get done, and fat quarters were donated for each month a project wasn’t finished. The winners of the most projects finished were Pam Peugh and Carol Sparks. Jan Maxwell won 90 fat quarters in the drawing.

November 2021 Program

How do you tie together an eclectic collections of quilts made over the years? Judy Vore and her mother showed us many examples they dubbed The Lonely Quilt Club so they could share their quilts that didn’t necessarily fit a “theme” but were beautiful just the same.

September 2021 Program

In September, Vicky Beasley gave an amazing presentation on making scrap quilts.

June 2021 Meeting

Nitetime Needlers held a traditional in-person meeting on June 10. The program presented by Kelly Ashton on Fussy and Fabulous—Let the Fabric Work for You was WONDERFUL! She showed many examples of how centering isolated motifs and matching stripes and patterns can take simple blocks to the next level. Her specialty is working with diamonds, triangles and hexagons, but even the square blocks were striking.

Right:  Elements of print fabric are enhanced when centered in hexagons, also creating a more unified design.

Kelly Ashton opened the program showing a quilt her grandmother made before she was born. The carefully cut flower petals inspired her body of work.

Matching stripes carefully on triangles set into squares creates a visually stunning quilt.

Show and Tell:  Mary Ann Heston shows us her latest quilt made from tiny hexagons, paper pieced and quilted by hand.

May 2021 Program

Our May meeting featured a substitute speaker, but there was nothing substitute about Jackie Keirnan-Hale’s body of artwork. Our guild president artfully combines printed fabrics, colored pencil strokes, hand embroidery and embellishments into wonderful landscapes and nature themed art. There is a reason her beautifully colored and textured work is accepted at many shows. If you missed this, visit her website at
