About Us

Our Mission

To provide a warm, welcoming, positive, respectful atmosphere for members to participate in our programs and share in the joy of quilting.
To provide to our members informative meetings, group sharing, fellowship and fun.

To be members of the community who share their time, energy and talent to comfort quilts and other charitable works.

Our History

BQG started In 1982 with just five women who liked to quilt. Today, over 100 women and men make and exhibit quilts, improve their skills with BQG speakers and workshops, and support people in need with Comfort Quilts and other charitable activities. 

 

Our earliest shows were at Burlington’s Ethan Allen store, where quilts were displayed on beds, chairs, and tables. We celebrated the nation’s bicentennial with our first show at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington. There, our quilts were properly hung on racks. From 2008 to 2019, we held the Quilt Show at Middlesex Community College. We hope to resume our Show in 2022 at St. Michael's Church in Bedford.

 

We still share a passion for quilting and continue our founders’ vision as we move forward in the 21st century.
