A while back, my guild (Central Jersey Modern Quilt Guild) had an exhibit at a large quilt show called NJ Quilt Fest. It was our chance to show off the modern quilting style to other quilters that might not be familiar with it.
So we asked our members to submit quilts that reflected the modern aesthetic and I think we pulled together a pretty sweet little exhibit. I apologize for the quality of the photos...
The feedback we got was positive and I think we peaked a few quilters' interest.
There were 21 quilts total in the exhibit. And they included our guild "banner" which is really just a large quilt. This banner was a group effort with lots of members contributing blocks and a few piecing it together. I sewed one block, the lettering part, and quilted the banner on my longarm and I love how it came out. We now like to hang it at retreats etc to show our guild pride. :)

And what was super-fun for me was that my sassy kiddos got to see my work hanging in a show.
