The Maple Leaf Quilters, MLQ, is a guild of approximately 100 members who share the love of all things quilted, pieced, appliqued or embellished.
We are based in Rutland, Vermont with members from Rutland, Addison, and Windham Counties.
In 1981, if you were a quilter, you might have belonged to the 'Round Rutland' Quilters group. In 1982 the name was changed to the Maple Leaf Quilters, and the same spirit of encouraging the art of quilting remained.
Several of the original 'Round Rutland' Quilters still belong to MLQ today.
Our first quilt show, known as the "Festival of Quilts" was held in April, 1982 at the Rutland Free Library. The shows changed from every year to every other year and our 28th show was held April 2016 at the Holiday Inn in Rutland, VT. Our next show will be in the Spring of 2025.
