MISSION of quilt show:
We have organized the First Annual Monument Modern Quilt show to share modern quilting with Coloradans in a beautiful outdoor setting. We invite all modern quilters, regardless of age, in Colorado to submit their quilts using the form below.
(Please note: We are a not-for-profit organization. We are asking for a $5 per quilt fee simply to cover the costs incurred with hosting this quilt show.)
OUR DEFINITION of Modern Quilts:
Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. 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, alternate grid work and a modern take on traditional block.
