Welcome!

Quilt Modern imageJoin the Inland Empire Modern Quilt Guild on our modern quilting adventure. All are welcome, whether you’re brand new to modern quilt-making, or whether you’ve been around the modern quilt block a few times.

We meet on the 1st Saturday of the month between 2 – 4 pm at:

Grand Terrace Civic Center
22795 Barton Road
Grand Terrace 92313

We will park behind City Hall at the Civic Center, but enter through the front of the library. The meeting room is on the right.

General Meeting Date Change:   Our May meeting will be on May 20th from 2pm-4pm at the Grand Terrace City Hall. The time and place are the same, only the date has changed.

 Our general meeting will feature Kim Wingert, a knowlegdable member who will talk about women and quilt history. She loves studying quilting history, completed and in-depth thesis, and is a fascinating speaker. She spoke at the Upland Library for Women’s History Month, and we are so excited to have her giving us the same talk. Wow! I cannot wait!

Executive Board Meeting: April 17, 6:30-8, Joann’s Fabric and Craft, Ontario Mills

What is a Modern Quilt?  “Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in many ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt. These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternative grid work. ‘Modern traditionalism’ or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting.”
