Maritime Modern Quilt Guild

What's that you say? A chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild in Maritime Canada?

That's right people - I am doing it! The Maritime Modern Quilt Guild is about to make it's debut. I cannot even tell you how excited I am about this. I have been thinking about stating a chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild in Eastern Canada for a few years now. There are a lot of Modern Quilt Guilds across the country, but up until now, the farthest one East is in Montreal. Too darn far away for us Atlantic ocean people.

The Maritime Modern Quilt Guild will  encompass the Maritime Provinces; Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island and will be based physically out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Because we will cover such a large geographic area we will likely have face-to-face  and on-line meeting options. Details to be worked out! 

First steps is to gather interest and have some start up meetings. Check out the Maritime Modern Quilt Guild Page for details.  

So if you are a modern quilter in the Maritimes and want to get your modern quilt on (or know someone who might like to), contact me here with a comment or via the guild e-mail 



  1. YAY congratulations. I'm in one of those "catch-all fairly large geographic region" guilds and it has been one of my favorite things about 2013. I think guilds are so important, and it has really infused my quilting with a new energy. You will love it. Hope you get a big turnout!

  2. Great idea! Way to go! Sorry I live so far away!

  3. Yay!! I'm so happy for you guys!
    We just started our brand new Victoria Modern Quilt Guild two months ago. Happy, happy :)

  4. Wahoo! Way to make it happen, Adrienne. Wishing you a wonderful turnout and many happy get togethers!

  5. Congratulations! I think it's a great idea. I'm currently living in the western part of Canada but hoping to move to NB within the next few years so I'm thrilled that there'll be a MQG chapter.

  6. WHAT!!!!!!????!!! This is awesome! I've been wishing for this for quite some time (but didn't know how to go about it myself ... and need a few more hours in my day). This is SOOOO exciting!!!
