Happy National Quilting Month
According to dictionary.com the word Quilt dates back to 1250 or so.
March 18th is Worldwide Quilting Day. The National Quilting Association (NQA) began sponsoring National Quilting Day with a resolution passed by members in 1991. National Quilting Day has evolved, and now we have Worldwide Quilting Day and National Quilting Month!

Neat Stuff from National
Here are two opportunities to participate in the national guild:
The MQG is planning a special exhibit at QuiltCon 2022 of temperature quilts created by members from around the world. This will be a fun way to visualize the different climates our membership lives in. Don't know what a temperature quilt is? Check out #temperaturequilt on Instagram or do a quick Google search to see a variety of ideas to get you started.
AND: During the course of the year, the MQG will share twelve quilts previously released as Quilt of the Month patterns. This is called MQG Modern Classics and you are invited to join in on the fun! Go to the website each month.
