More from AQS Chattanooga – Modern Quilts

This post wraps up the images I took of competition quilts at the AQS Chattanooga Quilt Week.  The quilts in all categories were definitely a cut above the norm.  And, as I said in my first post on this show, the detail and volume of quilting that made for such a dramatic display.  This category had only a few entries and they exemplify the clean, clear lines of the modern style.

The quilting in Red Rectangle definitely sets this quilt apart.  By Judy Mercer Tescher, this is a stunningly graphic design.

Jodi Robinson wrote that she wanted to create a very simple quilt with good visual impact.  Note the amount of quilting that makes this quilt so richly textured.

Dresden Daisies, by Kimberley Einmo, was actually entered in the wall quilt category, although it certainly fits the Modern Style.  I am guessing that, because she had two entries in the AQS Chattanooga show, that she had to enter one in a category other than “Modern”.  Dresden Daisies is a graphically modern twist on a traditional pattern. Beautiful!

Fire and Ice, also by Kimberly Einmo won “Best of Modern” quilts at the show!  It is a stunner!

Also at AQS Chattanooga, some interesting special exhibits featured interesting and amazing quilts.  I will show those in the coming posts as well as a few photos from my classes!  I am so glad that I could participate in this AQS show!
