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. Saturday workshop: Collide-O-Scope 

AUG 29-31

Blair Stocker

Don’t you agree, intentional use of color transforms quilts from the mundane to the sublime? At the Thursday Evening Meeting, you will see Blair Stocker’s trunk show and participate in a Q&A.  In her lecture on Friday morning’s Day Meeting, Blair will take you through a practical exploration of color value relationships between fabrics in your stash, how to understand it, and more importantly how to use it in your quilts. Blair is offering two  workshops.

Thursday workshop:  Find The Value in Your Stash
Saturday workshop: Starflake

SEP 26-27

Soft Covers for Hard Times

Join us for an antique quilt turning as we showcase wonderful antique and vintage quilts from our members’ collections. Historical colors, patterns and fabrics give insight into the lives and art of the quilters who preceded us.

Log cabins, Ohio stars, double wedding rings – the classic patterns never go out of style. 

This program is sure to provide inspiration for your next project.

Thanks to Merikay Waldvogel for the title of this event! (Used by permission.)

We have no September workshops.

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

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.”

Member since 2015
