Can you believe it? We are five! And, we are celebrating with our exhibit, My MODERN: Celebrating Five Years of the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild, at Island Quilter on Vashon Island. Island Quilter is a long term supporter of the Guild and we are honored to be invited to exhibit in their gallery. Our exhibit will be shown from January 2 to February 5, 2015.
As a Modern Quilt Guild, we are dedicated to exploring and promoting the modern quilt aesthetic. Modern quilts feature bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grids. Modern traditionalism, or the updating of classic designs, is also seen in modern quilting. As with all modern art, definitions are often debated and discussed. Come see what modern means to us.
