2018 MQ Quilt Show and Conference

Special Exhibits

The Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge

Vincent van Gogh is one of the world's most beloved artists. The participants in this challenge were inspired by his work and life to create their own small masterpieces. The quilts are made entirely from hand-dyed suede-look cotton from Cherrywood Fabrics. The strong visual impact of this exhibit is due to the cohesive color, size and fabric.

American Quilt Study Group's 2016 Quilt Study of Basket Quilts

One of the ways that members of the American Quilt Study Group learn about vintage quilts is by interpreting them in today's fabrics. One of the perennial favorite quilt patterns is the basket block. AQSG members were challenged to create a new quilt inspired by a 19th Century original basket quilt. The new quilt could be a reproduction or simply reflect the original in a way that spoke to the maker.

The 70273 Project

Before the Holocaust began, 70,273 physically and mentally disabled persons were callously and casually killed by the Nazis. Without laying eyes on the people they were evaluating, three doctors read the files. Once two of the three placed a red X on the form, the disabled person's fate was sealed. Jeanne Hewell-Chambers has set out to commemorate these voiceless, powerless people by gathering 70273 blocks of white fabric (representing innocence and the paper the doctors read), each bearing two red X's, and stitching them together into quilts.

Threads of Time

Desiring to create quilts from many eras and in several styles led Sharyn Resvick to make over seventy 24" quilts. Each one has a story to tell about the history of quilting as well as revealilng the evolving styles and techniques through each period.

Reflections of Quilters of the Year Exhibit

Beginning in 1998, MQ has recognized and honored individuals who have made a difference to Minnesota Quilters and to quilting in Minnesota. We are building an exhibit of inspiring quilts from each of these important contributors to our quilting world.

Ruby Anniversary Challenge

Members of Scrapbaggers, a southeast metro quilt group, were challenged to create red and white quilts in honor of MQ's 40th Anniversary.

Redwork Retrospective

Annemarie Yohnk has been a consummate collector of antique redwork quilts for several years, and has taught redwork classes during the revival of this meticulous handwork. The exhibit includes examples from the late 1800s to the present.

Quilts Remembered Collection

As a pattern designer of small traditional quilts, we are eager to see all of Annemarie Yohnk's creations in one display. From miniatures to wall hangings, her quilts are a window on the talents and resourcefulness of quilters from times past.

Additional exhibits contributed by MN Contemporary Quilters and Day Stitchers of Prior Lake.
