Modern quilts are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics.
Modern quilts are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Our guild president Christy created this presentation on modern quilting to share with the Boise Basin Quilters in 2013 and we had the same presentations later for our guild. Enjoy!
Color theory, or the scientific reasoning behind color mixing and the visual effects of specific color combination, can be a great asset to modern quilters. During one of the 2013 Sew Days we explored color theory and discussed its use in quilting.
Here is the slideshow presented by Lindsie during the discussion.
Here are a few posters to help as well.
