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.

History of the MQG

The MQG developed out of the thriving online community of modern quilters and their desire to start meeting in person. The founding guild was formed in Los Angeles in October 2009. Through blogs and the Internet, word spread quickly of the fun they were having and soon guilds starting popping up everywhere. The MQG is a nonprofit corporation with IRS 501c3 status. Now, The Modern Quilt Guild is made up of more than 16,000 members and more than 200 guilds around the world.
