Member: $12 Retail: $15

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! Supplies are not required for a lecture, although you may want to bring a pen and paper to take notes.
