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!

There are many dies available and the Accuquilt Go Release form, along with the full list of dies, is posted under Forms/Links then click on MTQG Forms. Generally you may check out the cutter and dies for one or two weeks at a time, subject to the sign up list. To sign up, please read, print, and sign the Accuquilt Go Release form.

Listing of MTQG officers from previous years is available Here.
MTQG Member, Carol Miller will offer a trunk show and talk about Travel Quilts.
Full day class with Marti French. She will teach us how to make woven backgrounds. Marti will focus on weaving the background fabrics but you will have time to add an applique to the piece.
More information on upcoming programs for 2015 may be found on the Programs page.
Sam Logan will have a class in making a small purse. As this class is full and there were many on a waiting list, Sam will repeat the class at the October ECHOS. This is a good Christmas-gift project so sign up for the October class. There is a fee of $3.00 for the pattern.
See Tips and How-To Information Here
Remember, there are no fees for these classes –they are presented to us by the skillful members of our own Guild. So just come and get lots of new ideas and learn some interesting tips and quilting skills.
For more workshop information, please see the ECHOS page!
