Modern quilts are primarily functional pieces and are inspired by modern design. Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different ways, but there are several characteristics that may help identify a modern quilt. These include the use of bold colors and prints, graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work.
Come and see the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild's interpretation of modern.
