Quilt exhibit at Sharlot Hall Museum:
Please plan to attend the "The Quilts of Emma Andres and Her Contemporaries: 1930's - 1940's" at the Sharlot Hall Museum. This exhibit runs through the month of September and is located at the west end of the Lawler Exhibit Center. It is important for quilters to support this special showing of quilts to encourage the museum to hold future exhibits of quilt from its collection. MTQG is one of the supporters who have made the exhibit possible.
For further information, contact Gail Van Horsen.
Photos for the Website:
When submitting photos to be displayed on the website, please use the landscape orientation (largest size from left to right) when taking your pictures. The portrait orientation (taller rather than wider) does not work in our slideshows. The webmaster appreciates your help with this!

October 17: Rob Appell Program
We are looking forward to international instructor Rob Appell to our guild. Rob learned to quilt while helping out at his mom's quilt shop in Morro Bay, California. This is where his love of the sea and his work as a textile artist and designer developed. He designs for Michael Miller Fabrics, is an author, and creates quilt patterns including the Endangered Species Quilt Project. His high-energized presentation is titled "Quilts From the Sea and Beyond" and adds a masculine touch to our predominate female quilt group. He will be bringing patterns and fabric to sell so bring lots of money!
You can read more about Rob at at his website here.
October 18: Rob Appell Workshop
"Endangered Species Quilt Project" will be the class Rob Appell teaches. The class is almost full with just a few spots open. The cost of this class is $50. There are twelve different animals to choose from. Patterns can be purchased for $18 plus shipping on Rob's website. There will be some preparation required before class.
View the patterns available for his class here.
