HMQS added a modern quilt category for the first time this year! The quilt show was held in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 9th-11th. The category for the show is defined below.
Modern: Quilts that are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics. Perimeter 220”- 480” Must be three layers; backing, batting and quilt top. What a great opportunity for all of us to show off our modern quilts. With over 25 quilts juried and over 30 for display the show was beautiful. Below are the top two winners as well as a few highlights! Thank you everyone for entering.
