North Coast Needlers Quilt Guild will present its 15th biennial quilt show, "My Favorite Chix are Quilters!" April 22-23. Over 250 quilts will be featured, ranging from traditional and contemporary to modern and art quilts, offering something for everyone to enjoy. Many of the guild's members are award-winning quilters.

Quilts will be exhibited in the airy rotunda of Westlake High School, 27830 Hilliard Blvd., on Saturday, April 22, and Sunday, April 23. Show hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days. A beautiful red and white guild-made quilt will be raffled off on Sunday afternoon. Admission is $5; $4 for seniors; 10 and under free.

Expanding on the show's theme will be a series of challenge quilts, "Chix Run Wild" and a block contest display. The contest blocks will be crafted into a "Chix For Kids" quilt for this year's donation recipient, Northeast Ohio Adoption Services. A special show event is "Adopt a Chix," with proceeds from the "adoption" of stuffed "Chix" also donated to Northeast Ohio Adoption Services to further their work placing children with loving families.

Rounding out the show will be a boutique offering handcrafted items for sale, a quilt-side cafe, and a vendor mall featuring local and regional dealers. More information can be found on the North Coast Needlers website,
