Modern/Minimal, The Quilts of Cathy Miranker

There is a dedicated gallery space at the new Bay Quilts in Richmond, CA at which I was lucky enough to see Cathy Miranker‘s exhibition Modern/Minimal. A member of the San Francisco Quilters Guild, and Bee Modern (an SFQG sewing circle), Cathy is also an individual member of the Modern Quilt Guild and the Studio Art Quilt Associates.

I’ve run across Cathy Miranker’s quilts in other California shows and they always make it on the blog – they are modern, original, thoughtful and with an attention to detail that doesn’t compromise any improvisation. A wonderful body of work is represented in this show, and I hope to see more shows from modern quilters in this space!

Enjoy!
