Everyone loves a road trip and in first place is a road trip to attend a meeting with other quilters. Last Saturday we loaded up the car and went to Nashville. We visited the Music City Modern Quilts Guild. The guild is about eight years old and has a membership that loves to quilt. They meet once a month on a Saturday and have a short meeting and then a sew day.

They welcomed us with open arms and shared the information about their guild. The members cover a large range of ages. We enjoyed their program on how to make bags.

Of course, just like all guilds they had “show & tell.” I have posted several of their quilts. I would encourage you to plan a road trip to visit a guild. I have found quilters are a friend group and love to share. Visit their website:

Our February meeting was a surprise to all of us. This meeting is the one where we voted to become a guild. A real guild a member of “The Modern Quilt Guilds” – this is a big step but guess what we voted and took that leap of faith. We are starting out small “but determined” and I am sure we will grow. I am posting a few of our “show & tells” from that meeting.

If this sounds like fun to you please join us at our next meeting on March 14 at 10:00am. The location is:

3Hens & A Chick Quilt Shop
1114 US Hwy 31 South Suite B
Athens, Al 35611

Need directions or more information give us a call: 256-497-2901 or the quilt shop 256-771-2040.

We Now Have A Name

We now have a name and we have officially joined “MGQ” Modern Quilt Guild. We also have a board and the membership is growing. We are excited and look forward to many years growing as a guild and encouraging the “modern quilt” concept.

Our Name: North Alabama MQG

A Guild Is Born

Our guild started out just a few ladies getting together once a month at our local quilt shop to discuss modern quilting. It didn’t take long before we wanted to become more organized. (Isn’t that just like women) We are in the process of becoming a real guild – a “Modern Quilt Guild.”

Please follow & like us 🙂
