I am on the committee for a quilt show next year, and we have added a new Modern Quilting category to the competition. Now for the hard part: coming up with a description/definition for quilt entry in the show that doesn't cross over into the other categories. What makes a quilt "modern"? Here are some initial thoughts:
* A twist on tradition
* Use of negative space
* Liberated piecing, design and layout
* Geometric designs
* Solids a common element
See what I mean? These items could refer to any number of traditional quilts too. What do you think?
