Home Machine Quilt Show - Call for Entries

The HMQS has added a modern quilt category for the first time.  While many modern quilters are not interested in making show quilts this is a great opportunity for all of us to show off our modern quilts.  It is great to see the modern quilting movement gaining recognition like this.

The category description for the show from HMQS states:
Modern: Quilts that are functional, include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt compositions, as are improvisational piecing and solid fabrics. 
This show is particularly focused on quilting that is harmonious with and appropriate to the quilt design. This doesn’t mean that simple or straight line quilting isn’t considered, or that other parts of the design don’t count. It just means that there is a particular focus on how well the quilting complements the design.

Entries are due on April 13th and quilts are due in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 27th.  The quilt show will be held May 9th-11th.
