GRAND HAVEN, Mich.—The hard work of Lighthouse Quilt Guild will be on display this weekend as part of the annual Great Lakes/Great Quilts show.

Visitors to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church can buy quilts and quilt related items, watch quilting demonstrations and check out more than 150 quilts made by the quilt guild.  Eight quilts will be picked for display at the 2014 American Quilting Show in Grand Rapids.

Visitors can also register their quilt in the Michigan Quilt Project by bringing a completed version of this inventory form and a picture of them and their quilt to the show.  The Michigan Quilt Project is dedicated to preserving the state's quilting history at the Michigan State University Museum.
