March 2023 Meeting

Monday, March 13, 6:30 p.m.
Carriage House at Overholser Mansion
405 NW 15th St, Oklahoma City

What does it mean to be a 'Modern Quilter?'

 This question can be difficult to answer because in many ways the definition of a modern quilter is as individual and unique as the actual quilter.

Modern quilting is a relatively new movement that has flexibility and innovation at its heart.

It is also about the attitude and the approach that modern quilters take. It respects the amazing artistry and talent of the tradition of quilting, while at the same time allowing the individual quilter to challenge the 'rules.'

At this month's meeting we'll be talking about the design elements that serve as a guideline when asking "What makes this quilt modern?"

The good news? It's not a rigid formula - in fact, many quilts may have only one element that deems it 'modern.' Instead, the concept of modern quilting is intended to reflect the individual personality and personal style of the quilter.

tl;dr If there were one 'rule' in modern quilting, it would be that there are no rules.
Are you sad you didn't attend QuiltCon?

Fortunately for us, however, we get to re-live the entire experience vicariously through Lela and Shankari!

Join us next Monday as Lela O'Dell and Shankari Paradee present their recap of everything QuiltCon 2023.

And then mark your calendars for February 22-25, 2024, for QuiltCon 2024 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Because FOMO is real...
