We are the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild, formed in January 2013. Our focus is on the modern quilt--defined by the use of bold color, modern graphics, use of negative space, improvisation, asymmetry and other modern design elements. We view modern quilting as an emerging aesthetic, still being defined and redefined by the wonderful quilters sharing their ideas with one another and the quilt world at large.
We welcome all levels of quilters--from beginners to experienced. Our meetings are open to all who have an interest in modern quilting. At our meetings, we conduct a friendly "Show, Ask & Tell" where our members and visitors share their in-progress and completed quilts. We also answer questions about modern quilting, techniques, materials, etc.
MEETINGS: We meet on the 3rd Saturday, January through November. Meetings are always open to Visitors and Friends. See our Guild website for details on dates and times, location and other Guild upcoming events.
