What makes a quilt "modern"?
Deconstructed Nine Patch by Jacquie Gering
I Don't Wear Blue by Cinzia Allocca Allocca
A Very Long Conversation by Rossie Hutchinson
Modern quilters tend to
- use solid colors which gives the quilt a more graphic look.
- use large blocks of a single fabric
- use lots of linear quilting
- use white space
I personally love the look of these and their titles. Totally fun, they are. But what I like best is that an entire new generation of women are doing what I love to do and that is awesome! Maybe what really makes it modern is the artists don't have grey hair:)
