Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century
“Modern quilts are utilitarian. They are art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They make a statement.”
Admire large, color photographs of the best modern quilting has to offer—more than 200 quilts curated by the Modern Quilt Guild. From quilt empires like the Amish and the quilters of Gee’s Bend to the first use of the word “modern” in quilting, trace the history of modern quilts and learn about hallmarks of the genre in a concise retrospective. With a foreword from Martha Stewart, this collectible, hardcover book honors the genre’s past, present, and future.
