  • MQG membership card and enamel pin

  • Members-only access to the MQG site

    • A great selection of resources, including free patterns, tutorials, videos, and more

  • Quarterly digital newsletter — Modern Monthly — which contains free Quilt of the Month patterns, a free Block Study (with quilt patterns included), articles, Member Spotlights, and more

  • Swaps and Fabric challenges (some of which include free fabric)

  • Members-only early registration and discounted pricing for QuiltCon

Why are there two MQGs? 


This is something that often confuses people! There’s one International organization, The Modern Quilt Guild (MQG) which has local guilds as well as individual members throughout the world. Calgary Modern Quilt Guild (CMQG) (that’s us!) is one of the local guilds.


Calgary MQG. This is where you are right now. We use this as our primary form of communication. It’s where we post Meeting and workshop info, everything you need to know for challenges and swaps, and much more.


The MQG   — This website is for the national organization. It contains all the MQG resources that come with your MQG membership

What’s QuiltCon?


QuiltCon is an annual conference that includes a large, juried quilt show, four days of workshops and lectures, vendors, demonstrations, and a chance to meet up with modern quilters from around the world.​
