We are a group of quilters and quilt-lovers in Victoria and lower-Vancouver Island who enjoy modern quilting. Our membership is open to anyone who likes modern quilts and wants to be part of a fun, like-minded group of people. We belong to the umbrella organization The Modern Quilt Guild. Check out our "Monthly events" page for more info about our meetings.
What is modern quilting? From the Modern Quilt Guild,
"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."
