Tuesday Archives #46: Modern Quilts

Val's Quilting Studio
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!
I'll be on Pat Sloan's Show

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!


  1. Wonderful modern quilt Val! And obviously your son in law is crazy about it!

  2. Sorry Val, no modern quilts in my archives at all. I'm about as traditional as they come. I did enjoy the link ups listed. Thanks for hostessing this linky.

  3. What a fun quilty hug. Looks like he's ready to put it to good use.

  4. I understand why your sun iin law is happy with his quilt. What a fun quilt and beautiful quilting.

  5. The Linky Party isn't showing up on my feed. Or maybe I just need a long winter's nap! Your son looks like he simply loved his quilt - awesome!

  6. Great photo of your son-in-law!

  7. It's always nice when a quilt is so well received.

  8. I don't do a lot of 'modern' quilts, but I did find one to link up.

  9. Thanks to everyone for sharing your "modern" inspiration!!


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
