Take the Shirt Off My Back: Opening Reception

May 14, 2024

July 18 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Artists from the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild proudly celebrate their exhibition Take the Shirt Off My Back, featuring 35 quilts fashioned with shirts from family, friends, thrift stores, and the artists’ own closets.

Chicago Modern Quilt Guild presents a collection of quilts showcasing the work of their talented and creative members. Take the Shirt Off My Back showcases the bevy of beautiful, inventive ways that materials can be repurposed, reused, and given new life. With consciousness of the widespread waste in the fabric and clothing industry, repurposing and sustainability was at the heart of this challenge.  

Each quilt tells a different story — sparking inspiration towards eco-friendliness in all parts of peoples’ lives — and hopes to leave a lasting impression on viewers.

The Chicago Modern Quilt Guild is an open-spirited community group, including all. The group believes that respecting different cultures and gender identifications enriches and enhances the guild.
