APRIL 21-JULY 16, 2017
See a special exhibit of quilts from QuiltCon 2017 in this show at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.
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. The Modern Quilt Guild was founded in 2009 and will show an array of contemporary quilts in this two-gallery show.
