The mission of the Capital District Modern Quilt Guild is to further members' modern quilting skills and to inspire and educate the Capital District community on modern and non-traditional quilting.

CDMQG exhibited at
Empire Quilt Fest 2024!

Our members showed 80 beautiful quilts, and our guild prepared an amazing display of handmade items to purchase!  It was wonderful meeting so many quilters from around the region!  (photo by Angela Pachal)


This quilt was auctioned at EMPIRE QUILTFEST 2024, and found a happy new home!

Adirondack Abstract was inspired by the High Peaks of the Adirondacks and the beautiful lakes and rivers in Upstate New York.  The pattern and quilting were designed and drafted by our members specifically for the QuiltCon 2023 "Colorshift" Community Outreach Challenge.  The quilt top was assembled during a fun guild sewing day using traditional piecing methods.  Each participating member received the fabric and instructions to sew one geometric area of the pattern.  (There were 24 individual areas.)  Then all of the areas were stitched together, like joining pieces of a puzzle!  The finished top was quilted by one of our members using a walking foot on a domestic sewing machine.  We are very pleased with the teamwork that went into creating this piece, and we are proud of the way it represents the landscape of our region.
