Darla Hall will lead the discussion and provide samples of Modern Quilting
What is modern quilting? The Modern Quilt Guild site says, "Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt. These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work. 'Modern traditionalism' or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting."
Please join us for an evening of questions, discussion and surprises. It promises to delight the eye and fill you with inspiration.
