The more I think about this “Modern Quilting” movement, the more I am getting upset. I LOVE the fact that new, younger, people are taking up the sewing arts — quilting being one of them. But I HATE the fact that the “queen bees” have laid down the “rules” of what it takes to be a “modern” quilter. They are trying to dictate the colors, threads and techniques that are “acceptable” to be in the modern quilt movement. Ridiculous!
Those of you who know me understand I don’t believe in “rules”. It’s against my belief — everyone is an artist and should explore their creativity WITHOUT any rules.
So, here is my take at creating a contemporary look AND breaking their rules! (Trust me — there are NO RULES!)
