At our next meeting - It's QuiltCon East 2017 Recap

March 11th is our Modern Quilt Guild - QuiltCon 2017 Recap

We invite you to come "SEE" as well as "HEAR" from our GMQG Members who attended this year's QuiltCon in Savannah, GA.

One of my recaps was the beautiful "Spring" weather in February we had opportunity to enjoy in combination with the festive event at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center. For many of us, our hotel was across the water from the convention center, so the ride by ferry was pleasant in temperature and picturesque......

This year's location for MQG QuiltCon East 2017 in Savannah, GA

Plus, the historic city of Savannah is best seen by walking, so another reason why having the great weather was awesome!!!!

Okay, that's enough about the outside....we hope you will come to see and hear about the "inside" happenings at the show --from winning quilts to workshop projects plus overall general thoughts. Members who attended workshops please bring your projects to show.
