National Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

We are forming a group of quilters to work on The Modern Quilt Guild (National) Charity Quilt Challenge entitled:

Modern Traditionalism

Quilter’s are required to be individual members of MGQ (National) and also
existing or new members of Long Island Modern Quilt Guild (LIMQG).
As this is a charity quilt we are also looking for suggestions for charity
organization right in our backyard to help make a difference. Please email Mario any charities for consideration -nycmulea@me.com

Time is of the essence as we have to submit participants names to The
MQG by September 20th, which is before our monthly meeting at the end
of September.

If you are interested in participating in the group effort please email :

Those that have already responded to the first call are on the list participants.


At September's meeting we will swap our Rainbow Mini Quilts with our 'secret quilter".  
If you are a new member and would like to take part in the challenge please bring your mini quilt to swap as well!

Here are the Mini Quilt Guidelines:

  • Size:  no bigger than 16"x16"
  • Three layers: piece quilt front, batting and backing
  • Use all colors of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet (ROYGBIV)

Partners will be revealed when we exchange Mini's at the September meeting!

As always....Stay Calm and Quilt on !!
