Hello! The Rochester Modern Quilt Guild (RocMod) is a group of individuals interested in fresh, modern quilting styles. We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, September through June, to share inspiration, learn, socialize, and have fun! Our guild is a member of the National Modern Quilt Guild. Please see our programs page for more information.
What is Modern Quilting?
From the Modern Quilt Guild Website:
“Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different 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 alternate grid work. “Modern traditionalism” or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting.”
