SPECIAL ORDER ITEM, ALLOW 1-2 WEEKS FOR SHIPPING
If there's one coffee table book every modern quilter should own, this is it. Compiled by the Modern Quilt Guild, this book gives a brief history of modern quilting, culminating in the creation of the MQG. There are examples of early modern quilts, which are so inspirational today, and they explain how a movement became mainstream. This book is primarily a glossy picture book, featuring over 200 of quilts made by members of the MQG, including a number of Make Modern contributors. It is divided into sections based on different aesthetics of modern quilting―Modern Traditionalism, Solids/Graphic, Colour Palettes, Minimalism, Expansive Negative Space, Alternate Gridwork. While not every quilt showcased will be your cup of tea (or shot of whiskey), there is plenty of inspiration and it's a great example of the modern aesthetic.
