Modern Quilts

It was a challenge to include all six fabrics in one piece. I decided to create a modern pattern for the challenge. Some of the pieces turned out to be no more than 1/2 inch square. The borders are asymmetrical. Modern quilts rely less on repetition and on the interaction of quilt block motifs.
They also contain reinterpreted traditional blocks. The bold colors of this collection of fabrics and graphic prints were perfect for a modern quilt.
