Lupus Canada is excited to announce that members of the East Toronto Modern Quilt Guild have created a purple butterfly quilt in support of Lupus Canada! An online donation of a minimum $50 to Lupus Canada enters the donor into the draw for this one of a kind lap quilt! Contest deadline is October 29th.
The East Toronto Modern Quilt Guild is about taking the traditional art of quilting and giving it new life. Modern quilters work in a myriad of styles and define modern quilting in different ways. And as a collective, they strive to unite quilters of all ages to share in our love of modern quilting together.
“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.”
At the East Toronto Modern Quilt Guild, we strive to unite quilters of all ages and identities and to share our love of modern quilting together.
