The Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild is a non-profit group organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.
The Guild will
● Develop and encourage the art of modern quilting,
● Work with other guilds and groups with a similar purpose,
● Encourage new quilters and other fiber artists interested in non-traditional fiber projects,
● Offer educational opportunities through classes, workshops and sharing of information,
● Support and provide opportunity for “charity” or other works that provide back to the community through the use of modern quilting skills.
The Guild fulfills part of these purposes through the organization of the annual Bainbridge Quilt Festival, a free outdoor quilt show open to ALL styles of quilting.
Guild Challenge: Red White and Blue
Many members took the challenge to create an original mini quilt in our national colors. You have to see these minis in person since size cannot be represented in these individual photos. Some pieces are less than 12x12. Others are over 24x24
Works are shown at Esther's Fabrics open now and through July. Come by for the July 7 Art Walk.
If you miss the show the works will complement the American Hero Quilts at the Bainbridge Quilt Festival September 9, 2017.
