Welcome to MMQG

Hello Blog Hoppers!  Welcome to the Maritimes!  Glad you dropped by. Not only is it the 3rd annual Blogathon Canada, sponsored by Sew Sisters Quilt Shop but it is also our one-year Anniversary!

Our November meeting at Patch Halifax.  

The Maritime Modern Quilt Guild was started in November of 2013 by Adrienne Klenck of Chezzetcook Modern Quilts.  A dream come true for her…to gather like-minded modern quilters together in our region…a place to share, inspire and just have some plain old fun with our common passion. She sent out the call via Blogland and 6 excited quilters showed up; the MMQG was born. 
To date, 34 quilters have joined in and become members.   Although the MMQG is physically located in the Halifax/Dartmouth area, quilters who live too far to join in, can still be a part of the fun!  For example, modern quilters have travelled from Annapolis Royal, Yarmouth and PEI to join in from time to time, bringing along some amazing modern quilts to show and share.  We are a talented lot here in the Maritimes!
Monthly meetings are held as well as the very popular monthly Sew-In Days.  Check out the MMQG blog for dates and times. 

Here are a few examples of  some works by our members

























        We are accepting new members!  We do have a ton of fun.  You can contact us directly at maritimemqg@gmail.com
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the Hop!

  3. Fabulous quilts - and the guild looks just awesome. I really wish I lived close enough to apply for membership - but New Glasgow is just too far away, especially after 8 or 9 hours of work and a 90 minute commute. Congratulations on your first anniversary, I'm sure your second year will be just as fantastic!
