National Quilting Day

The Lincoln MQG was invited to be a part of the National Quilting Day this year, at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum last Saturday, March 19th, 2016.  With over 600 visitors, we had a blast talking with people at our booth about modern quilting, and demonstrating different techniques unique to modern quilting.

Marilyn demonstrating scrappy improv blocks to visitors.

Nancy talking about her original paper pieced tessellation design.

Sheila gave her "Modern Quilting" lecture to a full house two times during the day.
With the help of guild members, she showed and discussed 44 modern quilts.
