In my local MQG chapter, we've spent several meetings this year talking to members on the elements of modern quilting. In June, we issued a challenge to make (or finish) a small quilt that uses an element of modern quilting and bring them to our October meeting.
The result? Our own mini quilt show!
To display the quilts, we used this quilt stand (affiliate link) and clipped a large bed sheet to the top. The quilts were then pinned to the bed sheet. One quilt was also clipped to the back of a chair when our display stand was full.
It was great fun to stand and look at the quilts and admire all the great work.
Members were then given the opportunity to make the tough selection for our Viewer's Choice award. (Since I was counting the votes, I choose not to vote myself. I was happy when my quilt got some votes!)
I used this great tutorial for our award ribbon.

The challenge and our mini quilt show made for a fun meeting!
Have a wonderful day! Patty
