What is modern quilting?

Modern quilting is a broad category of quilt design inspired by modern aesthetics. Makers generally design with the aim of making functional items. For more information about what defines modern quilting and the history of the modern quilt movement, visit this helpful link at the Modern Quilt Guild website.

What makes LBMQG terrific?

Long Beach Modern Quilt Guild is a welcoming group comprised of people at all skill levels with a sincere appreciation for any quilter creating from where they are– whether they are new to quilting or master artists. Our members enjoy all MQG membership benefits. This includes access to MQG online resources and programs, free entry into QuiltCon, and early Quiltcon class registration. All this and fellowship with a friendly local community and great programming centered on modern quilting! Join us at our next meeting!

Does your guild take fabric donations?

Although sympathetic to the need for outlets to donate, LBMQG does not accept fabric donations as we do not have the resources to manage and store this commodity. We recommend Diary of Quilter's Amy Smart collated list of places to visit and ways to donate fabric stashes. Amy's blog post offers many valuable resources. We heartily agree when she writes, " Before you send off fabric willy-nilly, I do recommend contacting the organization directly before you donate to understand their specific needs and only send fabric they can put to good use."
