  1. “Modern” quilting… 🙂 I had a discussion the other evening with a friend. He is a guitarist. He focuses on jazz but also plays a lot of classic rock. He said up front he doesn’t know the quilting terminology, but made a comment about my quilting being “modern.” I said, “I’d call it ‘contemporary,’ but it’s probably not ‘modern.’ ”

    Good luck with your project Awesome that you will be helping newer bloggers get their feet wet.

    1. Thanks Melanie.

      I actually find the whole modern quilting thing a little amusing. I think quilters often box themselves in unnecessarily. I’d go with a contemporary label over modern personally. Modern quilting seems to have a lot of unnecessary rules.

      I do love Tula’s term “moditional” though. I think it describes most of the quilters I like.

      1. I think the labels are pretty silly, for the most part. And I’ve thought it through pretty much every which way. But we as humans do like to categorize, and this is just one more way we tuck things into boxes. 🙂
