Based on the September, 2014 MQG Webinar - "Modern Quilting: Know it When You See It" - presented by Jacquie Gering, Debbie reviewed how a community of quilters is like a three-legged stool: traditional, art, and modern - none of which thrives without the other.
She also reviewed modern quilting elements, and then asked each of the 24 quilters present to indicate where they are on the quilting continuum... a long line from Traditional (on the left) to Modern (on the right) with each quilter's position marked by her initials on a yellow dot.
To see how quilters have moved from traditional toward modern, everyone was invited to show an older, more traditional quilt, and a more current, modern quilt.
These traditional quilts were shown.
We're all looking forward to seeing how our chapters' members move their quiltmaking further toward modern.
