This month's block is inspired by the new in-facility exhibit, Modern Quilt Retrospective.
Modern Quilting has existed in may forms for the much of the 20th century. It wasn't until the 2000's that quilts with a modern aesthetic, 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 began to appear in greater numbers and quilters began to describe themselves as modern.
This exhibition is a collection of quilts made by members of The Modern Quilt Guild over the first ten years of the organization.
Audrey is a modern graphic quilt artist from Louisville, KY. Always a maker, she learned to sew at a young age and made her first quilt in 2005. In 2018, she set a personal goal to exhibit her work in a juried quilt show, which motivated her to design and create a series of original quilts.
