Kite Tails Quilt: MQG Modern Classic August 2020

Page Content: 

In celebration of our 10th anniversary, we present the MQG Modern Classics. This quarterly collection is a selection of a few of our past favorites from the Quilt of the Month series, which started in 2015. With new colors, new arrangements, new possibilities, MQG members can find the full patterns on the Resources page.

We are inviting you to make one of the any of the previous Quilts of the Month in our MQG Modern Classics color palette for a chance to have a quilt included in a special exhibit for QuiltCon Together 2021! Learn more on our MQG Modern Classics page.

The sample quilt was made by Samantha Linehan of the North Jersey MQG.
