Sydney Modern Quilt Guild is proud to present the 2016 Modern Quilt Show Australia!

Australia’s 1st Modern Quilt Show was founded and presented in Berry NSW during May 2014 by Wollongong Modern Quilt Guild. The following year Modern Quilt Show Australia 2015 was once again hosted by Wollongong MQG, this time in beautiful Kiama.
