After the break, the Modern Quilters took over. They are a fun and talented group of ladies!
We learned a few things about the principles of "Modern Quilting":
1- the use of bright colors and solids
2- using the principles of modern art
3- using grey or white as background fabrics
4- using a lot of "negative space"
Then we enjoyed a wonderful trunk show!I didn't have the chance to get titles or maker's information, so please contact them for more information. (They are on facebook)
|Not all modern quilt use bright colors!
|Anne made this after a workshop with Nancy Crow
|I think they said this was inspired by Anna Maria Horner
