Benefits of MQG: Free Patterns!

One of the questions that’s routinely asked by new members (and current ones) is: What are the benefits of belonging to The MQG through OCMQG?

Besides member discounts for QuiltCon (future post), every month a new pattern is released to MQG members. These patterns are designed by active modern quilters, many of whom have their own quilting businesses.

If you remember to sign up for the MQG monthly newsletter, you should also be receiving a link to the latest pattern mid-month. This month’s pattern is Meeting of the Geese by Sylvia Schaefer.

Let us know if you’ve made a quilt using one of these patterns – comment below or post to Instagram with #ocXXXMQGpattern (where XXX is the month – jan, feb, etc).

Didn’t sign up for the newsletter? Forgot to download a previous month’s pattern?
