Many quilters love the modern quilt patterns. The modern quilts come in various styles but in general you could say that they are graphic, have bold colors and you might call the minimalistic when it comes to the pattern.

About Modern Quilting

Modern quilting is like a movement that has developed from the traditional quilting to a more modern and graphic view of creating a quilt. Every craft use to evolve during the years and quilting is no exception!

Here you will find a summary of what modern quilting actually is – something I know many of us wonders about.

Some modern quilting facts:


Modern quilting, like all art, changes, grows and adapts from quilter to quilter as they find their own voice. Modern quilts reflect each quilter’s personality and personal style, and as the movement has grown, a modern quilt aesthetic, a set of principles that define and guide the movement, is beginning to emerge.

Modern quilts and quilters:

Make primarily functional rather than decorative quilts

Use asymmetry in quilt design

Rely less on repetition and on the interaction of quilt block motifs

Contain reinterpreted traditional blocks

Embrace simplicity and minimalism

Utilize alternative block structures or lack of visible block structure

Incorporate increased use of negative space

Are inspired by modern art and architecture

Frequently use improvisational piecing

Contain bold colors, on trend color combinations and graphic prints

Often use gray and white as neutrals

Reflect an increased use of solid fabrics

Focus on finishing quilts on home sewing machines

Modern quilting has its roots in rebellion, in our desire to do something different, but simultaneously its feet are firmly planted in the field of tradition.  Modern quilting is our response to what has come before.  We are quilters first, modern quilters second. There are, however, characteristics that set modern quilters apart from our traditional and art quilting friends.
