Members of the Milwaukee Modern Quilt Guild will be participating this Saturday, June 8, 2013 in the “Kenosha Pop-Up Gallery”. For one night only, the first floor of the unnamed building at 5715-6th Avenue in downtown Kenosha will serve as a Pop-Up Gallery.
What is Modern Quilting?
“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, and alternate grid work. “Modern traditionalism” or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting.”
