Modern Quilts from Traditional Designs
After a brief explanation of how the Modern Quilting movement got started, we will discuss what design elements make a quilt modern. We'll then talk about how to use these elements with popular, traditional quilt blocks and designs to create modern looking quilts. The lecture includes numerous quilts as examples, including many of the quilts from my newest book Simply Modern Christmas.
