  • These include, but are not limited to: use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid colors, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid of work.
  • If you have miniature quilts following a contemporary or a Modern approach, you may enter it in this category.
