Modern quilts are utilitarian art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They break the rules. They make a statement. Modern quilts are creative expressions made with needle and thread, fabric, and time, expressing today’s aesthetic through a generations-old traditional craft.
Experience the power of modern quilts firsthand in this exhibit of 30–60 innovative and inspiring quilts that represent the best modern quilts and quilters of the past decade. In this exhibit, you’ll see the work of modern quilters past and present, and learn the story of modern quilting from its earliest roots and influences to today.
The companion book, Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century, contains more than 200 quilts showcasing the history of modern quilting.
