however MQG Norwich aims to :
Provide a forum for learning and discussing the development of quilting in the "Modern" form.
Find useful links and education to modern quilting.
Issue challenges and arrange meetings for members to engage and develop their quilting skills.
Move away from some of the more traditional ideas on use of colour, ranges and patterns and encourage people to explore their own ideals
Our key aims as a group are:
• To provide an environment where we can discuss the development of quilting in the Modern form and expand our learning.
• To access educational resources and other useful links
• To challenge ourselves so that we develop our quilting skills
• To go outside the box to explore our ideas on use of colour and pattern in our world.
