Modern Quilts – Designs of the New Century

Modern quilts mean different things to different people. Modern quilts are utilitarian. They are art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They break the rules. They make a statement. No matter the design aesthetic, modern quilts are creative expressions made with needle and thread, fabric, and time.

Experience the power of modern quilts firsthand in this exhibit of innovative and inspiring quilts that represent the best modern quilts and quilters of the past decade. In this exhibit, you’ll see the work of modern quilters, past and present, and learn the story of modern quilting from its earliest roots and influences to today.  This exhibition was organized and presented by Modern Quilt Guild.
