I LOVE modern quilting, let me stress this. I am, at times, thrown back in my chair in awe and amazement of some of the modern quilts out there, oh my. In a way they seem more impressive to me than traditional quilts because of their incredible level if improvisation. It's also fun to witness an art form like quilting evolve. Modern quilts are fresh, different, and uniquely individual, I love this especially. I have yet to see a pattern which exactly duplicates a modern quilt. And best of all, modern quilting has brought the word "wonky" into daily conversation.
Here's the front of the Elements table runner, basted and ready to quilt. It's far from Modern and hardly wonky, but it has that improved stripe on the back...that's a start, eh?
