2016 IMQG Quilt Show

Hello Members!

We are extremely excited to announce that we will be hosting a quilt show in the summer of 2016! The show will be Sunday July 31st, 2016 2pm-5:30pm at the Broad Ripple Park (1500 Broad Ripple Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46220) under their large picnic Shelter #1.

We are formally calling for submissions if you would like to put a quilt (or quilts) in the show! If you are interested, please see the following details for submissions and as soon as you're ready you can fill out the sign-up form at the link below. Please note that the deadline for signing up is July 10th, so your modern quilt and description need to be completed by then! You must be a current IMQG member to submit a quilt to the show.

We will be inviting friends, family, and community members to the event. The purpose of the show is both to show off and celebrate our beautiful quilts and also to share the modern quilting genre with the community. Please keep this in mind as you decide which quilts you would like to submit.  We want to display quilts that really emphasize modern aesthetic and principles. These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and modern prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work. You can find out more and see many examples on the MQG site here.

Due to the space limitations in the park, we will need to determine the number of quilts each person can hang based on the number of entries we get. Feel free to submit as many quilts as you want and we will let you know how many can be shown after our submissions close.

More details to follow regarding event details, volunteer opportunities, quilt drop off, and more. If you have any questions, please contact us at indymodernquiltguild@gmail.com or molly.isenbarger@gmail.com.

Submission Guildlines:
  • Maximum Size: 48”W x 96”H (we can be slightly flexible if you let us know in advance). Details to follow on the hanging process and requirements for a sleeve etc.
  • Quilt must be complete (including quilting and binding) and dropped off at a central Indianapolis location (TBD) by July 15th
  • Quilt must include a short description including what makes it a Modern quilt
  • Quilts must be created and submitted by an active IMQG member to be eligible


Thank you and we are so excited to see what you create!

The IMQG Board (Darcie, Karen, Katie, Lisa, and Molly)
