yeah. so this is the topic of the day.
What is Modern Quilting, anyway? Since I joined the NYCMetroMod Quilt Guild I've been thinking more and more about this. Do I want to be a "modern quilter"? but I don't use white sashing, and I don't buy Amy Butler. But when I look back at the quilts I've made in the past few years, yeah, they're modern.
I've got a Bento Box.
I did a Plain Spoken from the Ringle & Kerr book, Modern Quilt Workshop.
I made a crosses quilt inspired from pics on flickr.
I did one of Kaffe Fassett's Bird Boxes.
Hell, I even made a Chinese Coins quilt.
I just finished a paper-pieced string top and I've got a Spiderweb in the works.
the only thing I'm missing is some Drunk Love in a Log Cabin...
So what does all this mean? I don't know, but it sure is fun to be part of this movement. A part of quilting history. A part of the current wave of creativity that spreads and splashes into our heads, sewing rooms, and all over our beds, couches and walls in the form of cozy cozy quilts in the 21st century.
