Special Exhibits - New England 2018
- MQX 
is pleased to present exhibits that are more than simply a bunch of quilts hanging at a quilt show. Each exhibit has an interesting story

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Retrospective Quilts by Margaret Solomon Gunn – This exhibit showcases quilts Margaret has made over the last 23 years. Not knowing any differently, her earliest pieces are simply made and hand quilted. After purchasing a long arm in 2009 and being coaxed into entering a quilt show, this once-engineer was firmly bitten by the machine quilting bug. Follow her growth and progression in the industry with 14 award-winning machine quilted pieces, and several earlier works.

The "Dotty for MQX" Challenge

It has been said that MQX Founder, Janet-Lee Santeusanio has a love of polka dot fabrics. Her recent closet clean-out indicated a longtime obsession with polka dots when she found numerous articles of clothing, covered in dots! Her desk boasts of several dotted reader glasses and let's not even talk about her stash.

Did you see the 2017 mugs? How about the student/vendor lanyards? Yup, polka dots. So Mary's thought was....... let's do a new challenge for 2018. 

Announcing for 2018, The "Dotty for MQX" Challenge!

Has MQX Gone to the Birds? Well, Maybe!

December 2, 2017
The Year of the Birds!  We hope you all had a relaxing, happy Thanksgiving.  We're noticing a 'bird' theme to a number of the classes offered at MQX New England this spring. We're not sure how that happened but these birds sure are really pretty and oh so ...
