Modern Quilt Showcase – A Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild Show

IMG_1268The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild recently held their first quilt show called Modern Quilt Showcase.  Over 100 modern quilts made by guild members were shown.

The eye-catching, creative quilts on display represented new directions in quilt making such as the use of solid colours, asymmetry, improvisational piecing and less traditional machine quilting designs.

IMG_1270_edited-1The show was held at the Pipe Shop Building, a restored structure from the historic shipyards on the North Vancouver waterfront, now a unique event venue.  The building’s heavy timbers and high ceiling and the natural light from many doors and windows made a wonderful setting for the quilts.

There was lots of inspiration at this show for those who want to explore modern quilt making – new quilters, or experienced quilters looking to do some rule-breaking.
