Happy Tuesday Archives everyone!
Today's theme is Modern Quilts.
A quote from the Modern Quilt Guild helps us define the genre today:
"Modern Quilters bring a new bold new aethetic to a craft dominated by traditional and art quilting. The clean lines and stylish color schemes prevalent in moder quilting appeal to fans of sophisticated modern design."
I'm a huge fan of Victoria Findlay Wolfe and follow her blog for Modern inspiration!
In 2012 (preblogging) I made this Modern Style quilt for our son-in-law. He was a paramedic at the time so collecting this variety of fabric was fun! My husband actually picked out the large numbers print to represent them using "radio codes".
I gave it a cozy flannel backing and had alot of fun free motion quilting this one!
And as you can see...he LOVED it!
