I really liked the blocks in this quilt:
This quilt won second place in the modern category. It was cool to see traditional fabrics used in a modern way.
Laurel made this one for a Modern Quilt Guild challenge. I think it’s the epitome of modern.
I love the colors on this quilt by Deb Henderson.
This all-silk quilt was improvisationally pieced. The silk made the colors so vibrant!
This one also used a great deal of improvisational piecing. It won a ribbon in the art quilt category.
This fabulous quilt is one of Nupur’s first! I love her colors.
Look, Tula Pink! I really wanted to steal this quilt of Deb’s, since the Salt Water line is my favorite.
