One of the goals of a quilt guild is to provide its members with learning experiences that they may use to develop quilting skills. These experiences are often best provided by lectures or workshops given by both national and local teachers. MTQG provides programs like these each month at general meetings.

Occasionally our meetings may be more social in nature, such as the spring luncheon or ice cream social, and our annual Christmas luncheon.

Quilts and quilting are always part of the day no matter what the occasion.

Scheduled programs and workshops will be presented here, but please see the easelprogram chairperson at general meetings for more information and to sign up for workshops you may be interested in taking.

Fun Day - April 21, 2015:

MTQG’s fourth biennial Fun Day was all about the fun of fabric and getting to piece a quilt top in a day.  For just $60 the board selected (based on participant input) and pre-cut all the 5 yards of new fabric for a fun-filled day of sewing.  The pattern wasn't known ahead of time, but quilters went home with a 60x70 inch quilt top!  And because quilting is so much about the fabric, there was a wide llist of possibilities from which participants could choose.  Selections from the following fabric designers: Kaffe Fassett, Laurel Birch, Jo Morton, or Paula Nadelstern.  Or one of these themes:  batiks, birds, chickens, florals, oriental, patriotic, or western.  Because color is so very important, the participants' input was certainly considered, even something like black and white and _______?   The class was limited to 20 participants.
