The 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.
The 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.
