2025 Special Exhibits

Mod Quilt Squad

The logo of the Mod Quilt Squad features an outline of the state of Washington with a green square, red circle and blue triange.

CCQ started a modern quilt group in July 2018. We have a roster of almost 50 quilters. We are meeting monthly and have a topic/program each month.


This exhibit includes our Block of the Month Challenge, which began in January of 2021. Members selected a theme color for each month.


“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.” Definition provided by Modern Quilt Guild with 14,000 members in 39 countries.


This is an open group and all are welcome.
