JanomeOttawa Modern Quilt Guild displays quilts inspired by modern design. Modern design includes, but is 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. Which elements do you see in our quilts on display? This quilt display is sponsored by Janome.

Botanical Reflections is the show from the Fibre Art Network (FAN) with each piece a personal interpretation of the natural world in unique styles, whether abstract, graphic or representational.

Trend-TexStitching a Canadian Memory is the theme of our annual CQA/ACC Trend Tex Challenge fundraiser, and this year we invited both wall hangings and bags.  You are able to bid on all the quilts and maybe take home a Canadian Memory. Sponsored by Trend-Tex.
