This website provides support for the Lansing Area Patchers Quilt Guild (LAP). LAP was formed more than 30 years ago by a small number of members. At the end of the first years LAP had grown to 30. In addition to providing training to its members through classes, lectures and library books, LAP members are involved in a number of quilting projects like silent auctions, challenge quilts and ugly fabric block contest. An important part of LAP is its service projects such as quilts for those in hospice, doll quilts for disadvantages kids, quilts for people in emergency housing and even comfort quilts to nursing homes.
In addition to supporting these activities, this website provides its members access to meeting minutes, slide shows, financial reports, a directory of its member and forms and documents with information of all types.

The rest is up to you! You can make It a holiday theme, favorite color, scrappy, you decide! The result can be a standalone quilt as a wall hanging or table topper or be the center of a larger quilt. The choice is yours!
Quilt making is a fun and rewarding activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and skill levels. It is an act of creation of true beauty and an expression of emotion that is captured and shown in the careful choice and preparation of fabric and in the placement of each individual stitch.
The best thing about making your own quilt is that once it is finished you get to share it with your family and friends! A quilt can be used by someone on a day-to-day basis and serve as a constant reminder of the love, care and attention to detail that went into making it. For this reason many quilts are cherished and kept as heirlooms to be passed down to future family generations.
