Quilting Definitions
Duet Quilt - is a quilt constructed by one person and quilted by someone else.
Art Quilt - is a contemporary artwork of original design involving the creative expression and exploration of various processes, such as dyeing, printing, painting, stitching, embellishing, weaving, and quilting. An Art quilt does not follow traditional block lines.
Memory Quilts - are a way of remembering or celebrating family or group history, the life of a loved one, personal milestones, or an important event in life. Materials used can be clothing, photos, memorabilia,etc.
Applique Quilts - use applique technique as the primary feature. The definition of applique is sewing of smaller pieces of fabric onto a large piece or whole fabric. Applique quilts can include other quilting techniques in a secondary role.
Modern Quilts - are defined as quilts that are functional, often include bold colors, and are inspired by modern design. Minimalism, asymmetry, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work are often a part of modern quilt composition, as are improvisational
piecing and solid fabrics.
Whole Cloth Quilts - The top layer of the whole cloth quilt is made from a single piece of fabric. No patchwork or applique is used in the quilt design. The appearance of a whole cloth quilt relies on the quilting motifs that are chosen., and quilting stitches are usually intricate and closely spaced.
Baby Quilt - is defined as a small quilt made to fit easily in a crib using any variety of quilting techniques.
Miniature Quilt - is no larger than 24 inches x 24 inches, must reflect an overall reduced scale in piecing, applique, pattern, and binding.
Machine Quilting -is quilting with any type of machine - home sewing machine or long-arm quilting machine.
