MQG Event (Modern Quilt Guild)

MQG Modern Monthly BOM

Each month the Modern Quilt Guild sends out a newsletter called the MQG Modern Monthly to its members. It contains a quilt of the month pattern, information on how to sign up for free webinars, a block of the month and quilt pattern, and more! I am really excited to share that I created the December Block of the Month (BOM): Cogs!



Not only is there a pattern for making the block, there is a lesson and a quilt pattern, too! Members have access to the resources page that explores cropping and how to use it in a modern quilt setting.

Not a member of the Modern Quilt Guild? I have a giveaway running through Friday, December 15th at noon Eastern, where you can enter for your chance at a free individual membership!

    Hello Yvonne; I did do the Raffle for the give away. I am sorry that I can not see the newsletter and what you have done with this block, you know I am such a fan of yours! I did go and check out your face book page today also. I fell in love with your blocks from your, oh now my brain stopped, they were blue with some pink fabrics on your design board. I love the combination and your blocks are so fabulous! Looking forward to seeing it all put together also. Have a great day!

    This is a very cool block. I bet it creates some interesting shapes for fun quilting. I’m not a member of the MQG, but I’m starting to wonder if I should be.

  10. I saw your block in the MQG e-mail newsletter. Congratulations. I only had a quick look…will have to go back and check it out in more detail.

    I love the version of the block in a quilt that looks like improv! I just might eventually try to make some sort of version of it. It looks like it would be fun to play around with.
