The Bainbridge Island Modern Quilt Guild is a non-profit group organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.
The Guild will
● Develop and encourage the art of modern quilting,
● Work with other guilds and groups with a similar purpose,
● Encourage new quilters and other fiber artists interested in non-traditional fiber projects,
● Offer educational opportunities through classes, workshops and sharing of information,
● Support and provide opportunity for “charity” or other works that provide back to the community through the use of modern quilting skills.
The Guild fulfills part of these purposes through the organization of the annual Bainbridge Quilt Festival, a free outdoor quilt show open to ALL styles of quilting.
Many members took the challenge to reinterpret a traditional quilt block into a modern work. Can you name the original block?
Works were shown at Bainbridge Performing Arts through July 2016. Then on to Ontario California for December and January.
Next challenge is for a red/white/blue work for display in July and with the American Hero Quilts at the Bainbridge Quilt Festival September 9, 2017
