Modern Quilts : Designs of the New Century Hardback
"Modern quilts are utilitarian. They are art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They make a statement." Riane Menardi, Alissa Haight Carlton and Heather Grant. Admire large, colour 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 honours the genre's past, present and future.
