Modern Quilting At Road 2016

Road to California prides itself as being the quilt show for every quilter.

When it comes to Modern Quilting, Road 2016 has it covered:

Road to California 2016 is proud to host the special exhibit, The Best of Quilt Con 2015. Presented by the Modern Quilt Guild, 20 inspiring quilts showcasing the work of some amazing modern quilters will be on display.  dsc01685 What kinds of quilts can you expect to see in this exhibit? Quilts that are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. 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.download The Modern Quilt Guild was 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 of 2009. Through blogs and the Internet, word spread quickly of the fun they were having and soon guilds started popping up everywhere. Today there are over 125 guilds around the world with members on six continents.
