Happy Easter! And thank you for joining me this Sunday.
Today I am going to start sharing quilts from the "Modern Traditionalism" category. I think you will agree that they are a really interesting group. I took quite a few pictures of this category, so I am going to split it up and share on multiple Sundays.
First up, "Focal Point" by Christa Watson of Las Vegas, Nevada. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
Having an off center big block is a popular choice with modern quilters. I especially like how Christa quilted it with a spiral, which is in contrast to all the sharp points of her blocks.
Next up is a two color quilt called, "Cabogo" by Silvia Sutters of Edwardsville, Illinois. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
Silvia was inspired by artist Victor Vasarely (who has very 3 dimensional graphic works) and tiles used in Brazil.
Upon closer look, her blocks are drunkards path.
Another drunkards path quilt was "Flounce" by Melanie Tuazon of Livingston, New Jersey. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
This quilt won 2nd place in the category. I like how each column has one block in print fabrics. Sometimes I wish we could see more examples of modern quilts with more prints in them.
And finally for today, "Blueberries for Sal" by Elisa Albury of Salt Lake City, Utah. It is machine pieced and machine quilted without a frame.
I really like these simple blocks, and especially liked seeing some of the hand stitching in random places.
What about you? Have you made any "Modern Traditionalism" type quilts?
Thanks for reading today,
