What is a Modern Quilt? The Myths & the Magic!

Friday, August 6, 2021

This lecture and trunk show introduces quilters of all backgrounds to the modern quilt movement. Intimidated by modern quilts or just confused or curious about this emerging trend in quilting? 


Carole dispels some of the myths and misunderstandings so you can understand and

appreciate this new style of creative quilt expression!  There will be lots of time for questions and answers. In addition to the lecture (slides), I also show some of my quilts ‘in person’ on my design wall and table. 


Topics include:

  • What makes a quilt modern? Modern quilt design principles explained

  • Myth busters: blowing away the myths about what is (and is not) a modern quilt

  • Trunk Show: My Modern Quilts influences and evolution

  • Minimalism to Maximalism trends in modern quilting

  • Resources list (handout provided)
