Make it Modern

Our guild members made quilts that harken to the Sisters' Choice block.  The term “modern traditionalism” generally refers to any quilt that has a traditional pattern, block, or design as its foundation, combined with one or more modern design elements. Modern traditional quilts often start with a traditional block or pattern, which is modified using modern design elements. These elements can include: 

  • negative space, 

  • asymmetry, 

  • scale, and more. 

When one or more of these modern elements meets a traditional pattern, the result is a modern traditional quilt.

After the Nov 30th deadline, you'll be able to vote for your favorite, and we'll find out whose is whose in our Dec 5th meeting.
