Modern Quilt Guild

The Modern Quilt Guild


The MQG developed out of the thriving online community of modern quilters and their desire to start meeting in person. The founding guild was formed in Los Angeles in October of 2009. Through blogs and the Internet, word spread quickly of the fun they were having and soon guilds started popping up everywhere. The MQG is a nonprofit corporation with IRS 501c3.

Our mission is to support and encourage the growth and development of modern quilting through art, education, and community.

The Modern Quilt Guild is made up of more than 200 guilds around the world.

The Houston Modern Quilt Guild


The Houston Modern Quilt Guild is a non-profit organization made up of a fantastic group of quilters from Houston and the surrounding areas who lean toward a modern aesthetic of quilting. We are a part of the Modern Quilt Guild.

The mission of the Houston Modern Quilt Guild is to provide an environment that facilitates the creativity and concepts of modern quilt making. This is achieved by providing educational meetings, sponsoring quilting activities, outreach into the community via charitable donations,and promoting the appreciation and knowledge of modern quilts and quilting techniques.

In an effort to grow, challenge, and inspire our club, we like to interact with our members and guests as much as possible. From monthly meetings, to free workshops, and even socials and gatherings, there's always something to do with the Houston Modern Quilt Guild.
