What’s modern quilting?

Ahead of their first show, the Lake Superior Modern Quilt Guild says we can think of their work as an evolution of tradition quilting. Member of the group Jen Gustafson explains, “Traditional quilting can be thought of as coloring inside the line. Modern quilting is coloring outside the lines.”

The LSMQG’s Modern Quilt show will be held March 1-31 in two locations in the Lincoln Park Craft District. This free exhibit of modern quilt artistry will be on display at Duluth Pottery & Tile, 1924 W. Superior St., Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and at Enger Lofts, 1832 W. Superior St., 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

In addition to the quilt exhibit, the public is invited to two special events:

• An Open House to kick-off the month-long event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 2 at Duluth Pottery & Tile. Meet our quilters, view the quilt display and share some refreshments.

•Interactive displays and demonstrations will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 18 (National Quilting Day) at both Duluth Pottery & Tile and Enger Lofts. You can talk to the quilters as they demonstrate techniques and even try your hand at quilt design.
