The 2023 KMQG Quilt Show will take place March 3 - 31 at the Emporium in downtown Knoxville.

Members should start thinking about what modern quilt they would like to submit for consideration.   We want quilts of all sizes and representing all aspects of modern quilting

  • Bold colors and prints
  • High contrast and graphic areas of solid color
  • Improv piecing
  • Minimalism
  • Expansive negative space
  • Modern traditionalism

QuiltCon 2023 Outreach Challenge

A number of members stayed behind for a sew-in after the meeting and we finished all the blocks needed for our quilt!  So the next step is to assemble the top ready for the appliqué details.
