People often ask me about "modern" quilts.
Are they actually any different from traditional ones?
Where did the term come from?
What is so special about them?
Well all of the pieces you see here were cut and sewn together using Improv techniques...they're probably a little more elaborate than your average "modern" quilt - yes I got a bit carried away!!! - but if you look at just a small section of any of them...you'd be close to a modern quilt...for example...just the lighter rectangle on the right hand side of the quilt below...would be considered modern.
Modern quilts have really revolutionized the field of quilting, bring into it younger energetic folk who are in a hurry!!! and that's great! I completely applaud the movement.
What I don't applaud is then trying to create and sell specific "patterns".....for the whole thing about being modern and improv is that you take a few basics...and then make it your own!
To find out a bit more about my thoughts and prejudices (!) and have a go on your own, consider my Mod Meets Improv class - and see you how go. I think you'll enjoy it, plus you have unlimited access to me - which may or may not be a good thing!!!
I'd also love to read your comments about the modern movement....I promise to answer every one!!
So, if you have been, thanks for reading!!! Elizabeth
