The East Cobb Quilters’ Guild is proud to present Georgia Celebrates Quilts®, our 19th Biennial Quilt Show and Market. It is Georgia’s largest continuing juried and judged Quilt Show with over 300 quilts by artists from all over Georgia.

UPCOMING PROGRAMS

MAY 30-31

Sylvia Schaefer

Scientist and quilter, Sylvia Schaefer, will present two different lectures this month.

Sylvia says:  “Inspiration is everywhere—in my case, I often find it in science. I’ll show you my quilts and talk about the science behind them. You’ll leave with a few fun new factoids about the way the world works and inspiration to look to your own career for quilt ideas.”

 

 

 

JUN 19-21

Malka Dubrawsky

Note we are meeting one week earlier this month.

Malka is a multi-talented fiber artist, fabric dyer, pattern designer and author. Get to know an adventurous fabric colorist!  Malka adds intensity and luminosity to her projects through the use of both vibrant colors and more muted shades. Working with a concept she refers to as Simple Design, she focuses on exploring the many design possibilities of a single shape.

Malka is offering two workshops – for more information, click on the links below.

Wednesday Workshop: Tonal

Thursday Workshop: Design and Dye

JUL 25-27

David Sirota

Join us Thursday evening and Friday morning as we meet David Sirota, all the way from Manchester, NH. David brings his comedic tendencies to the front when talking about his journey as a quilter. As a quilting novice in the ’90s, he was drawn to the intricacy and accuracy of paper piecing. Prepare to be entertained as you learn the evolution of David’s No More Tears Paper Piecing method. A series of tweaks to traditional methods rewards quilters with painless accuracy from block one to completed quilt.

David is offering one workshop on Saturday – for more information, click on the link below.

Saturday workshop: Collide-O-Scope 

Welcome to East Cobb Quilters’ Guild

Welcome to the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild!  ECQG is made up of more than 300 quilters who share a love of quilts, and whose quilts are as diverse as the quilters themselves.  At our meetings you will see traditional and modern, pieced and applique, large and small, hand-quilted and machine quilted.  You will find quilters who are newbies and those who have been quilting for decades.  Our roots are in East Cobb County, but our members live in the Atlanta metro area and beyond.

Our meetings are held at Catholic Church of St. Ann in La Salette Hall in Marietta:

Catholic Church of St. Ann
4905 Roswell Rd.
Marietta, GA 30062
Directions/Map 

Our Day meeting starts at 10:00 a.m. on the last Friday of each month (except for November and December) and our Evening Meeting is held on the Thursday evening before the Day Meeting starting at 6:45 p.m.

The Guild provides a variety of events and activities that promote the art of quilting, foster community goodwill and create an atmosphere where fellowship and friendships prosper.   

Although visitors are welcome at both of our monthly meetings, why not consider joining the Guild?  You can see the benefits of membership on our Join Us page.  If you enjoy quilting, we are confident you will find your niche within our group.

What East Cobb Quilters’ Guild members have to say:

“I thought I knew about quilting as I have made a few in my time. But because there are so many different types of quilters, really cool tools AND guild members are willing to share best practices, I have begun to create at a level I never imagined. Thank you and I look forward to even better technique and skill.”

L.S.
Member since 2021

“I’ve been involved for less than a year and have found ECQG to be a fun group of dedicated, amazing quilters and artists with a wide variety of experience. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you out.”

J.R.
Member since 2022

“My neighbor asked me to join her at this meeting. She was a longtime quilter and I was not.  Was immediately overcome with the process, joined that day and volunteered to work in the library so I could study the books. Have been a quilter since and love it!. ECQG is very organized.”

C.L.
Member since 1990

“Every year the guild offers a series of classes that are taught by the “A team” of quilters from all over the country. These are the kind of classes you would take if you went to a national show. Even during the pandemic when teachers didn’t travel, ECQG had classes – zoom classes. I had a great zoom class with Melinda Bula. The classes are gold.”

A.G.
Member since 2016

“What I find of extraordinary value to me is when, during the Show and Tell portion of our guild meeting, individual members, usually being quite modest, show their creations in fabric which are above and beyond my imagination.”

D.M.
Member since 2019

“ECQG is one of the most generous and talented guilds in which I have been a member. Beginners are constantly encouraged by the membership who excel in design and workmanship.”

G.J.
Member since 2015
