Well, I decided that this “old, grayed quilter” would see if it was possible to make a modern quilt. Guess what, I made my first modern quilt and liked it, even had fun doing it. All quilted now and ready for binding…ugh! This started with several groupings of pieces of fabric exemplifying a study of space. Then I decided that even though I had just used old stash without much consideration of color, I didn’t want to waste my efforts. So..here it is. It does look better in person but hopefully it will pass the “modern” movements inspection. Either way, I called it ugly when I started and have grown kind of fond of it now.
You made it beautiful, Karen, with your quilting. I have to say that the Plain Jane photo didn’t turn me on. 🙂 The finish is magnificent.
I agree. Plain Jane was ugly! Kinda like the way it turned out though. Good chance to play with the quilting! K

your quilting is the real beauty here! Magnificent! All that white space gives you so much room to really showcase where your talents really are found. I am always tickled to see what part of the process people enjoy the most and the least! I think for you I would guess you love your chance to doodle with the long arm, and you lothe the binding! Me, I love the cutting and the piecing to make the blocks and build into a quilt top. Once that is done…I am “done” but “KNOW” I need to do the next steps to finish! You quilt is very graphic and “modern” I think you passed the challenge!
