Hello MMQG!

It is time for us to start preparing for our FIRST Mad Mod Quilt Guild - Quilt Show!  This show is open to any of our members who have attended at least one meeting.  This is a big library and there is a lot of space so if you're having trouble deciding on which quilt to show, bring two or three!  

What you need to know....

  • The show is May/June 2013 at the Madison Public Library-Alicia Ashman Library
    • Set up April 30th 6:00pm - Take down June 29th time TBD
    • 733 N High Point Rd, Madison, WI 
  • Any size quilt is welcome.  (Mini Quilt - King)
  • The theme is "Modern."  How you interpret that is up to you.  
  • The library provides rods with hooks so please attach loops to the back of your quilt so we can hang them.
  • All participants must read the Exhibit Contract and Art Display Guidelines.  See Below.
  • Make sure your name is somewhere on the quilt so we know who it belongs too.  If you're not a member on Facebook, we will need contact information as well.
  • We (Mad Mod Quilt Guild/Volunteers) are not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged quilts.  
  • The exhibit is not insured by the Mad Mod Quilt Guild, Library, or volunteers.

We need your help:

  • PICTURES!  If you've completed the quilt you intend to show we need a few digital images of quilts we're submitting in order for the library to promote our show.  The Library will choose what photos it uses.  Email these by Sunday March 24th.
    • Email high quality, well lit photos.
  • A title for our show.  Put your suggestions in the comments please!  Otherwise it will be named:  Mad Mod Quilt Guild:  Modern Quilt Exhibit
  • Volunteers for installation and take down!  Please sign up in person at our March meeting.
    • These people will also be responsible for collecting quilts in person at our April meeting and returning them to their quilters no later than the July monthly meeting.
  • Let us know you're planning to show a quilt by leaving us a comment so we can gauge participation.

Note:  You are welcome to install and take down your quilt yourself if you'd prefer.  Tell us this in person at the March or April Monthly meeting.

If you have questions, please email

Thank you in advance to everyone for making this show possible.  I am so excited to see your quilts!!  Lets show Madison what modern quilting is really about!  -Wendy
