We’re exhibiting at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival

We are exhibiting at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival now underway in Hampton, Virginia at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.

At the beginning of the year, members randomly selected a modern design category and created a quilt using that design element.  The categories included (1) modern traditionalism; (2) expansive negative space; (3) minimalism; (4) innovative piecing; (5) improvisation and (6) modern appliqué.

If you’re at Mid-Atlantic this weekend, take some time to explore our modern design quilts.
