Is it possible to do Modern quilting with Traditional fabrics?
Or does the fabric chosen for a given project necessarily feed into the definition of modern vs. traditional?
The plan for my friend's wedding quilt was to develop an abstract look: the floating dark squares in the yellowish background. (What colour is that, anyway. Mustard? I always thought mustard would be more green or more brown...)
There was much angst and worry over cutting the jelly roll up - would I have enough? What if I didn't - where would I find enough fabric to make up the difference?
I made 81 blocks for a 9x9 quilt...only to discover that I didn't have quite enough fabric for the last block and had to piece together some ends...
Only, as it turned out, I'd made 91 squares. *facepalm*
So the quilt is now 9x10 blocks.
And in the process of putting blocks together, sometimes you do something amazing:
I swear, I couldn't have done that if I tried!
