While sewing together these little stars today (from my scraps), I pondered a question I was asked earlier in the week. "What is "modern" quilting? Is it rectagular shapes and minimal pattern? Is it "free piecing? What about the intricate and innovative? And what about color and texture? Jaquie @ Tallgrass is doing work that I would consider modern but she uses traditional blocks alot. What about Victoria? That Kitchen sink of hers is certainly funky but that type of quilt has been made before. I'm not saying Victoria isn't doing her own thing. She is! I've seen her in action in the flesh and she's awesome. And me? I may not have reinvented the wheel but I'm certainly rolling it down a road I paved myself. (And I'm singing my own song while I'm doin it!) So, I guess "modern quilting" is really like pornography. You may not be able to "define" it, but you sure know it when you see it! Happy quilting!
