Sydney Modern Quilt Guild is proud to present the 2017 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.
With a vision to see the show hosted by the various Modern Quilt Guilds of Australia, the baton has now been passed. The first step is to Sydney who will host the fourth annual show, following a very successful Modern Quilt Show Australia in 2016.
