We are the official St. Louis chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild (STLMQG), which was founded July 20, 2010, by Kristy Daum. The guild was born out of a desire to connect with other quilters and sewists from around the area who have an interest in the modern aesthetic. 

We are a unique guild in that we strive to present "All Things Modern, All The Time." Regardless of whether you are an experienced quilter or just bought your first few yards of fabric, we hope that you will find our guild inspiring, educational, fun, and entertaining.

What is Modern Quilting?

In our opinion, the best definition of modern quilting can be found on the Modern Quilt Guild's (MQG) site, part of which is below, although we encourage you to visit the MQG's site for the full experience.

"Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design. Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt. These include, but are not limited to the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work. 'Modern traditionalism' or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting."
