Looking Ahead!

The Central Florida MQG has been invited by Mancuso Show Management that produces World Quilt Florida to exhibit modern quilts at their big event in Orlando!

Event dates are January 18-20, 2018. 

Member Beth is leading a team to plan how we will prepare for our exhibit, including:
  • selecting up to 30 members' quilts that represent characteristics of the modern quilt aesthetic
  • preparation of each quilt, such as sleeves for hanging
  • promoting our Central Florida MQG chapter at the event
  • attending World Quilt Florida to answer attendees' questions
  • deliver and pick-up of the quilts to the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando
  • individual quilt exhibit signage
After Beth's committee meets on Saturday, July 29, expect more information about how to participate. Be thinking about a modern quilt or two you'd like to submit for possible inclusion in the exhibit. This is an exciting opportunity for our chapter to share and display modern quilts!
