At the commencement of the session, guild members were asked what they felt their individual level of experience or confidence was with modern quilting. "We're calling this our 'Modern Quilting Confidence Quotient,'" said Veronica, the moderator of the brainstorming session. Using data collected from last year's session, the survey revealed positive results.

Data collected represents those in attendance at the 2015 and 2016 November guild meetings.
For the members of the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild, the 2016 year was filled with a number of programs and hands-on activities that covered patchwork basics and general quiltmaking techniques as well as the core concepts of modern quilting. Judging from another robust list of suggestions and ideas that emerged from the November brainstorming session, next year will be just as promising for building quiltmaking confidence as this year was.
