Experience Quilt Fest Near McHenry County Real Estate

July 06, 2011

The summer season is the perfect time to get out and explore all the festivals and other exciting events that McHenry County has to offer. If you’re ready to get out of your McHenry County real estate for a day of fun, then you should visit the Northern Illinois Quilt Fest (NIQF).

From July to September, McHenry County will host this nostalgic event. Festivities kicked off with a preview night on June 30 at the McHenry County Historical Society Museum, one of the anchor sites of the Quilt Fest; but don’t be upset if you missed that event.

Other event highlights include “How to Plant a Quilt Garden” on July 9 and a Quilt Show, Quilt Garden Sept. 17 and 18 at Countryside Flower Shop.  On, Aug. 19 and 20 at the Cosman Center in Huntley, the Gazebo quilters and Huntley Park District will present a weekend of Quilts of Valor and Under My Wings with Marianne Fons.

Other McHenry County anchor sites including Grace Farm Studios, McHenry County College and Countryside Flower Shop.

While you’re out exploring NIQF, make sure to visit a Gerstad Builders’ community. We build McHenry homes at Liberty Trails, Richmond new homes at The Trails of Pheasant Ridge, Poplar Grove homes at The Trails of Dawson Creek and Williams Bay new homes at Bailey Estates.
