July Program – Triangle Modern Quilt Guild

Quilting outside the box and inside the Triangle

TriangleModernQuiltGuildMichele Wilkie, current president of the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild, will present a program on the modern quilt movement.

As defined by the Modern Quilt Guild:
Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. 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.

The Triangle Modern Quilt Guild is a Chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild for residents of the Triangle region of North Carolina, who are interested in non-traditional, modern quilting. They meet on the second Sunday of the month @ Spoonflower Greenhouse.
