The world around us is our muse, and with a camera phone at hand, we can find that inspiration just by looking at something through a lens other than our eyes. Let award-winning quilt artist Esterita Austin take you step-by-step through her process of inspiration, and you’ll start seeing the world -and your quilts- in a whole new way.

Modern quilts are being featured more and more in books, magazines, and shows. So what makes a quilt “Modern”, and how does it differ from other quilt styles? International quilt judge Judi Kirk is a member of both the USA-based Modern Quilt Guild and the Modern section of the Quilters Guild of the British Isles. Beginning with a brief history of Modern quilting and its development, Judi will highlight the elements that make a quilt Modern. This talk will demystify terms like “alternative grids” and “asymmetry”, and you may find that you have been a modern quilter without knowing it!
