The Nonconformist, April 2017

Page Content: 

"The Nonconformist quilt block is a take on the classic Winged block. It demonstrates how a traditional pattern can be tweaked to create a very interesting modern quilt. The Modern Quilt Guild has long tried to socialize and bridge the gap between traditional and modern quilting. This quilt embodies the idea that traditional can be made modern again by merely pushing the boundaries of our perception of classic traditional building blocks." –Rachel Singh
