HMQS Top Winners!

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.   HMQS_Quiltcon-ad-web-newsletter-side-Dec-3   With over 25 quilts juried and over 30 for display the show was beautiful.
