Modern Quilt Relish at the IQSC

The IQSC is housed in a ten million dollar modern masterpiece.  I jokingly call it MOMA of the Midwest, however there is an odd disconnect for me between the architecture of the building and the presentation of historic quilts.

Museum = art.
Quilts in a museum = art.
Art = visual experience.
Visual experience = look at quilts.

Sometimes I feel like all the other material in the galleries gets in the way of the visual experience...which is why I LOVE the modern quilts from Modern Quilt Relish that are hanging in the atrium right now.

Modern building = modern quilts = perfection.

The submission deadline for REPEAT has come and gone...The TOP TEN designers will be revealed throughout the day on Saturday March 10th!

On Friday I presented my thesis project to the Lincoln Quilters Guild who generously provided me with a scholarship that literally made the whole project possible...THANK YOU!  There were a several modern quilts on display at my presentation made by Marny and Jill from Modern Quilt Relish.  Sheila Green, organizer extraordinaire, was kind enough to coordinate the quilts coming to Nebraska!

You can see Modern Quilt Relish's quilts on display at the IQSC from March 17 to April 1st!  Admission to the museum is free on Saturday March 17th in observance of St. Patrick's Day...just kidding, its National Quilting Day.  No green beer, but lots of free, fun activities...
