Contemporary/Modern Quilt Group

The newly formed Contemporary/Modern Quilt Group will have it’s first meeting on Saturday, June 13, 2015, from 10 am to 12 pm.  The meeting will be at the Guild.  For the first meeting attendees are asked to bring their definition of Contemporary and/or Modern Quilting.  This can be a written definition or actual examples of this type of quilt.  Currently the group is open to all Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Guild members. For questions call Jillian Grant at 417-343-3351 or email at

Patriotic Piecemakers

We are the Patriotic Piecemakers of the OPQG. We strive to remember our military combat veterans with a Quilt of Valor. Officially, we meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 10 am until 4 pm, but you don’t need to attend meetings to be part of our group.  You can sew blocks and/or quilts for a deserving veteran and drop them off at the guild. Contact Connie Bradford for more information at 827-0866 or ­­­

Patriotic Piecemakers presents quilts twice a year, in June and November. While all patriotic quilts made by OPQG members are donated, the Quilts of Valor donation quilts must meet certain quidelines for presentation to combat veterans. These guidelines come from both the QOV national organization and OPQG Patriotic Piecemakers committee:

  • The quilt top should be 62 x 72 inches or slightly larger. A uniform size is desirable for the quilt presentation ceremonies.
  • Only cotton fabric, thread, and batting may be used for quilts. Exposure to chemical agents while in service causes some veterans extreme sensitivity to polyester and other synthetics.
  • Piecing a quilt that resembles or replicates the American flag is NOT permitted. Fabrics having American flags printed on them are permitted.
  • Wash and dry the completed quilt with unscented laundry products to eliminate odors and allergens.
  • Labels for Quilts of Valor will be provided for quilts. Please do not apply a label.
  • Do not include political or religious themed fabrics or motifs.


 Let us keep up the hard work to provide our veterans with a quilt to say “Thank You” for all they give and do so unselfishly.

Applique Groups


  • Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month (unless notified otherwise) at 9:30 AM at 2738 S. Campbell in the Village Shopping Center.
  • This beginning appliqué group was formed in May 2009 for anyone interested in learning appliqué, both hand and machine.
  • The meetings are focused on teaching various techniques and applying them by practice.
  • The members are at all different skill levels, from beginners to advanced.
  • We invite those more experienced in appliqué to join us and share your knowledge or just come for the camaraderie or to work on projects.
