About Traditional Quilt Group

The Traditional Quilt Group is one of five Specialist Groups within Quilters’ Guild and is now over 14 years old. We have more than 340 members who share our passion for traditional blocks and techniques while embracing modern life.When I am at exhibitions displaying the Traditional Quilt Group challenges, a lot of visitors are surprised that there aren’t more hexagon quilts on display, as most people first think of hexagons as a traditional quilt. Well, they are, but so are many other styles that our talented members embrace. However things do move on and though hexagons have come back into fashion over the last few years with many new and younger quilters embracing their infinite variety again in fresh new ways, the Traditional Quilt Group has a very diverse membership who enjoy wholecloth, piecing, applique and much more.
