Our 2015 show was held Friday and Saturday, April 17th and 18th at Expo Hall in the Mobile Civic Center, 401 Civic Center Drive, Mobile, AL 36602.  Under the expert and experienced leadership of Elaine Williams many new exhibits were introduced.  There was a Quilt of Valor exhibit, a History of Quilts exhibit and as always a showing of many of the Linus Quilts donated every year.  A highlight of the show was a presentation of Quilts of Valor each day at 10 a.m. to deserving veterans to show our appreciation for their dedication and courage.  Each received a Quilt of Valor acting as a warm hug from ACQG.  The Basket Auction was an eye catching, well done display that earned kudos   for our non-profit organization.

Our 2013 show, Quilts of the Gulf Coast, was held in May at the Mobile Alabama Cruise Terminal.  Over 300 quilts were showcased.  There were special quilt exhibits and demonstrations by Rhonda Blasingame from Mississippi, and Carol Thompson from Fairhope.  The 2013 show included a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, a Unique Boutique, vendors with fabric, quilting machines and cabinets, a Quilter’s Basket Auction, and a group of Azalea Trail Maids looking lovely and reminding participants that Mobile is the Azalea City.
