We are quilters first, modern quilters second

Hello! We are the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild. Modern quilting is our response to what has come before. We gather once a month to collaborate, learn and share our quilts.


Phoenix chapter was established in 2012. We have grown and evolved into a group of 70+ members from across the valley, country, and globe with a variety of interests and talents. We host periodic Sew-n-Chat, workshops, and other special events throughout the year.

We are a diverse welcoming community coming together to  educate and share the passion of quilting by supporting each other, giving to our community, all through the love of Modern Quilting.

October 2023 - Fusing Project Challenge

It will be fused during the meeting and then finished up at home. All participants who finish will get a little gift and there will be a random drawing of the entrants for a $50 gift card to the local quilt shop of your choice. AND REMEMBER IT YOU DON’T WANT TO KEEP IT, Diana will happily take it for Community Outreach!
