Modern quilting to me means lots of colour and lots of open space!

Liz DandeliondD said...

That is such a tricky question to answer because *Modern* quilting is so diverse.
I think it's mostly the wonderful modern fabrics used in the right way.

Erin Quinn said...

Modern quilting seems to be a really nice use of negative space. I think it helps to let the fabric shine and means the piecing that you do is more a feature.
(Congrats on getting published! THis book is on my birthday gift list :-])

Fran said...

To me modern quilting is bright & bold fabrics, lots of solids & negative space. Your quilt is gorgeous & the book looks fantastic, thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Elaine said...

Love your quilt and thanks for the sneak peek of others. Modern Quilting for me is new takes (be it fabric, reinterpretation of blocks or techniques, etc.) on traditional quilting.

Lynne said...

Firstly congratulations! What an honour and how exciting!

Modern quilting means .... Hmmm, what does it mean to me? It's a fresh way of looking at traditional patterns, it's new blocks that haven't been done before that may themselves become traditional one day, it's bright and clean and unfussy. It's old skills used in a new way. It's my kind of thing even though I'm "old" and grey!

Paula Ganyard said...

Congratulations on the book! Modern Quilting to means the permission to color outside of the lines.

Lisa Marie said...

Modern quilting means making things that please you without being constrained by rules. I like the Modern Quilting emphasis on simple, clean lines.

Pat Merkle said...

Very cool! Congratulations. It looks like a really great book!

Gill said...

Congratulations!
I think modern quilting is about bold colours and negative spaces!

Joyce said...

I guess its mostly about original use of color and space and not conforming to traditional design.

Linda said...

Modern quilting: stretching traditional design beyond original boundaries.

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

I'm not sure what it is but I really like it!

Dee said...

Congratulations on being published and with such a beautiful quilt! How neat to be able to share this with us...because each week I love coming here and seeing what other quilters are working on. Modern quilting, I think, is only that it' happening in the now...each of us rediscovering a passion our ancestors relied on and enjoyed. Making the passion ours and sharing it with others!

Huzzah!

Rachel Booth said...

Congratulations on the book! I LOVE your quilt submitted to it!

TO me, modern quilting is about playing with colors, shapes, and design in a way that is distinct and separate from traditional quilting. I love that it makes quilters think outside the box!

Beth said...

Modern quilting to me is just another way to play with more fabric and designs.

Gene Black said...

modern quilting is a mystery to me. I assume it means clean lines and a minimalistic approach usually with open (solid) areas

Beth said...

For me modern quilting is being creative and not constrained by rules

B Greene said...

Modern Quilting to me involves intentional use of negative space as a design element.

Karrie S said...

You can do what you want to do. Lots of free motion quilting, creative, bold colors, fun, unique, neat shapes, no rules. I love it!

I would LOVE to get a copy of this (e)book :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Marj said...

Modern quilting means freedom to create to me. Congratulations on the beautiful inspiring book.

Purl Buttons said...

I think of oversized graphics and lack of fussiness when I think of Modern Quilts. Also, brave color themes, unbridled energy.

Kathleen said...

Congratulations!! I just ordered one from Barnes and Noble! Can't wait to get it!

Allison C said...

Congratulations! Love your quilt! Modern quilting means freedom to use bright bold colors, crazy improv designs, lots of negative space, and fun quilting patterns.

tpott said...

More solid fabrics and not always blocks, large strips, anything goes boldness. No boundaries, no worrying about the quilt police. Congratulations on being published!!!

Kristan said...

Such a hard question! I think for me, modern quilting is being unexpected with regards to fabric choices, patterns, and even techniques. A quilt can have some or all of those qualities to be considered modern to me.

Rebeckah Austin said...

bold bright colors on a nutural background.

giddy99 said...

Modern quilting means a lot of things, it can be lots of solids, negative spaces, simple quilting, and/or mod prints on a traditional layout, etc. I love it all. :)

Brittany said...

For me modern quilting is more about the fabric. It's bright and homey and not necessarily the floral hand dyed colors of the past (although I love me some civil war quilts!) I heard the term "modern traditionalist" and I love that - keeping the traditions of quilting with modern twists to make them fit perfectly into my life today

Scrapatches said...

Modern quilting to me means allowing myself the freedom to make quilts that express me ... Pat

Kelly Smith said...

Congratulations! It is a gorgeous quilt! Modern quilting is bold beautiful colors and the freedom to express yourself.

Debi said...

Modern quilt is bold colors with bolder designs. Thanks for the chance to win.

Chelsie C said...

Modern quilting is doing your own thing and using every day inspiration to make something beautiful.

Leila said...

Love the rainbow hst! Beautiful! Thanks!

Julie Thompson said...

When I think of modern quilting, I think of bright fun colors that may or may not conform with "modern" patterns. I love bright and bold fabrics made into traditional blocks which I think gives it a completely modern appeal.

Carolyn said...

Congratulations!
To me, modern quilting has to do a lot with color and placement. It doesn't always have to be full of negative space, but it gives you a chance to take a look at something from a different point of view.

Mary Ann said...

Congrats. To me it represents a challenge because I am just getting in to it.

Books_Bound said...

Looks like you like a gray background! :)

To me, modern quilting has much to do with the fabric: high saturations, modern patterns, using solids--especially neutral backgrounds. But this is just me--I still tend to favor traditional quilt patterns, I just like them done with more modern fabric. I know many other quilters like to loosen up the designs of quilts as well.

Jackie Russell said...

Modern quilting for me means bright colors and lots of open space.

mtnquiltr said...

Lovely quilt! To me modern quilting is about using bright, fresh fabrics and often solids to give a very different look to traditional quilt blocks.

pinsandneedles said...

Congratulations! Modern quilting means bright colors of tradition patterns, use of solids, improv piecing, more negative space...there is lots of aspects to modern quilting! Thanks!

Jyllybean said...

Congrats on the book! Yours is such a lovely quilt!

Gloria said...

Congratulations.

I am not certain that I can sum up what a modern quilt is as it encompasses so much more than fabric choice and pattern choice.
BUT, I know a modern quilt when I see one!

Anna said...

Gorgeous quilts! When I think of "modern quilting," I think of a lot of negative space, improv, etc. I like to think of myself as "modern," but maybe I am more "contemporary" with my color choices and blocks.

Jo said...

To me modern quilting is bright and bold fabrics, traditional methods but with a twist and negative space.

DianeY said...

To me, modern quilting is about bright colors, whether solids or prints with lots of negative space in either neutral or bold colors

Angela Gibson said...

Congratulations! Modern quilting to me means unique ideas with lots of negative space. :)

Jen said...

To me, modern quilting is more about connecting with a younger generation of quilting that is interested in new designs and fabrics. I think it's less about certain styles or techniques (i.e. negative space, improve piecing) and more about the emergence of a new generation of quilters.

Kelly Cole said...

Modern quilting means doing what ever you can dream up and sewing it into a quilt! Thanks for the giveaway, it is a great book full of inspiration!

Laura said...

Gorgeous quilts! Thanks for the chance!

~Michelle~ said...

I think part of modern quilting is to think a bit outside of the box - whether in fabric choice, color, design...

AJ said...

To me, I think the fabric, and colors can make traditional blacks and designs modern. Thanks for the chance to win. Love your quilt.

Amys Crafty Shenanigans said...

Modern quilting to me is hard to describe!! Bright, saturated colours, negative space, and and and.. so hard to describe! Thanks for the chance!!

claudia said...

To me, Modern Quilting is bright colors and clean lines. I don't know if that is what it is or not, but that is what I see when I look at a Modern Quilt.

debbiekl said...

Modern quilting to me is less traditional with fun bright fabrics instead of the "old lady" style.

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

My definition of modern quilting is more solids, clear brighter colors and much more negative space. Congratulations on having your quilt published!

Kelly O. said...

the thing i love about this book is quite a few of my fave bloggers are in it which makes you feel kind of like you "know" the authors

modern quilting, in my mind, is quilting with modern fabrics and possibly the addition of textural elements... oh and you use a rotary cutter :)

Heather said...

To me, modern quilting is not being constrained by traditional designs or color schemes--more imaginative, more negative space, bold color!

Flowerstar said...

For me, modern quilting means playing with an old tradition to make something new :). (I'm not a fan of the totally free-form, so your quilt actually is my favourite of those shown above!)

Suz said...

Modern quilting to me means some sort of twist on traditional, whether it be fabric, block or quilt design.

Alison said...

Modern to me focuses on shapes and positive/negative space rather than texture.

quiltma said...

Modern quilting to me means freestyle.
Adding different style of quilting together in an eye pleasing arrangement.

L said...

To me, modern quilts are not "too busy"

Stitched Together said...

Modern Quilting means clean lines, clear colours and a style that my boyfriend actually likes!

Doris said...

legato1958 said...

Your quilt is gorgeous!

Susie
legato1958@aol.com

andreaf said...

Modern quilting means using modern fabrics in fresh colors, improvising, geometric patterns, trying something new... there are just so many possibilities!

Allison said...

I honestly don't really think about modern vs. traditiional much at all. Mostly what I think about when I hear 'modern quilting' is this fabulous online quilting community :)

java diva said...

hhmm maybe "modern" means to me using the latest fabrics and not say calicos or anything from my mom's stash. :P

Korfela said...

Ola ... nice colour joice on your quilt ... congrats.... Lenka

Modern Quilting to me, means fresh lines and 'less is more'.

Modern quilts for me have simple lines and simple quilting and usually a lot of open space.

Trudi said...

Modern is a new twist on the traditional :) great book!

Deb said...

Modern quilting...clean lines, use of color...no icky browns or drab colors, use of solids, no hard and fast rules, use of negative space and lots of fun!

Cindi said...

Modern quilting means freedom to put the quilt together as I see it.

Annabelle said...

This quilt is one of my favourite styles. Modern quilting is just so different as it allows free range of fabrics, colours, styles - the sky is the limit. Congratulations on this very modern quilt and being included in this awesome book.

Linda E in AZ said...

Modern quilting means a new look.
Thanks for giving us a chance to win this great looking book!

to me modern quilting is just a change from the old--even an update of older patterns.

Sallie said...

Modern quilting means a freshness to quilting. Thanks for the giveaway!

aiah23 said...

Modern quilting means filling negative space with amazing quilting. It means keeping a quilt design simple and really emphasizing bold colors or palettes. It's a bit like abstract art.

Fawn

Pat Merkle said...

Congratulations! Awesome!

I love modern quilting for the simplicity. I love the bright colors and mix of solids with bold prints.

Nita said...

To me, "modern" means using different neutrals for backgrounds...greys & browns. Oh - and odd geometric shapes scattered across the tops.

Terry@ a quilting blog said...

Modern quilting (to me) is mixing clean lines with bold colors and using quilting to add texture and depth for design.

Amanda said...

I have had this book on my wish list!!

Marta said...

Just looking at your quilt makes me feel cheerful. I love it!

Jitka Oherová, Czech Repubic said...

Moderne quilts is about colours - light, bright combine with contrast -white, grey or black.

Betsy said...

Awesome book

Tanya said...

The book looks great, just need to decide which one to make first.....

Karen said...

I think modern quilting is identified by use of great fabrics and clean graphic designs.

Fran said...

Modern quilting can be just about anything, but for the most part I think of something gray or solid.

Gayle said...

modern quilting means fresh & clean & graphic!

Rachelle said...

To me modern quilting is clean looking, most often with a lot of solids.

Philippa Gelinas said...

I am just getting back into quilting after many years....and so so attracted to the simplicity of the modern quilt.

Farm Quilter said...

To me modern quilting means more emphasis on negative space, quilting that sings and unexpected use of color. Love all the quilts I've seen in this book!!!

Barb said...

For me, modern quilting involves using old designs in new ways. A traditional quilt block becomes fresh and new by using bright colors or by being wonky or even by being made with string-pieced fabric. Taking just a few of those traditional blocks and scattering them randomly on a solid background is another way to be modern.

Melanie said...

Modern quilting is lots of negative space.

Montseta said...

Congrats for being on the book!!! Terrific quilt.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts said...

For me, modern is about the choice of fabrics. It's about the balance between negative (usually solid) space and the colourful focus blocks.

Debbie said...

Modern Quilting to me means bright color and geometric shapes. thanks!

Foster said...

Congratulations on publishing. Modern quilting means simplicity with the style, often improvisational.

hueisei said...

Modern quilting to me is the fresh and modern colors

Lyn said...

Congrats! To me, modern quilting is traditional pieced blocks, or appliqued blocks, arranged differently and using different color/prints/color combinations than traditional quilts.

Allison said...

Modern quilting to mean means using non-traditional fabrics in an often very simplistic way.

Margo Piikkila said...

Modern quilting breaks rules - how wonderful! Colours are vibrant and bold and designs are simple yet complicated and depict everyday items rather than fancy intricate designs. I love the modern quilt movement!

Alli said...

Modern quilting means using fun fabric any way that makes you happy! :)

Dree said...

To me, "modern" means patchwork that bends the rules--in scale, in arrangement, in use of color and/or negative space.

Dree said...

Argh...I accidentally shared the project I shared last week, and it won't let me delete it! It actually won't let me view it, because I "don't have the credentials"!

Geri Barnes said...

Modern quilting means non-traditional color and designs!

Kate said...

Thanks for the giveaway! The quilt looks great!

Karen at Fireball said...

Congrats on the book. I think modern quilting embraces the negative space as a key part of the quilt composition. It's often simpler but more exciting at the same time because of unusual use of scale and symmetry.

Jacklynn said...

Modern quilting is perfectly imperfect - the blocks might not match - the stars are a bit wonky -and it's OK! Thanks for the give away!

carol said...

Modern quilts are exciting, creative, unique, a new twist, and often the WOW when we see a Modern Quilt.

Jessica said...

Bright colors and prints!

Scrap Happy Quilting said...

I really like this modern twist to an old favorite!

Barbara @ Nähtante Quilts said...

Modern quilting means clear shapes and contrasts to me.
Thanks for the chance!

Kathy said...

negative space and solids and fresh new ideas

Jane S. said...

To me, modern quilting is creativity. It means unique color choices, leaving more open space, and exploring untraditional uses of patterns and fabrics in traditional settings. I love traditional quilting but I have to say, I really dig the modern stuff too!

Bari B said...

Beautiful quilts! I would love to win the e-book!

Thanks!

janae king...sewing patterns said...

"Modern Quilting" to me is taking a traditional block...making it a bit 'wonky'...using wonderful Kona Cottons (solid colors) and shades of gray for the background.

Beth said...

To me modern quilts mean dramatic use of space, and arrangement of color and fabric that brings energy to a quilt.

Congratulations on being included. Your quilt might be just the one I've been trying to think of for my cute not-too-new nephew who needs a quilt of his own.

CathyK said...

Congratulations on being published! How exciting! To me, modern quilting is making traditional block with a twist using colors and textures!

Sabrina said...

Thanks for the chance to win.

Kimberly Cassie @ Quilty Doodads said...

Modern quilting is tough to define. It can mean different things to different people. I label something as modern based on fabric patterns and colors, updated quilt blocks and negative space. I can't wait to see the book. Thanks for the giveaway!

Alexis said...

I really like your quilt pattern! I heart rainbows. The others are great too.

I'm terrible with words, but modern quilting means using non-traditional patterns and colors/fabrics. (i.e. Not your grandma's quilt stuff - no bear claws or baskets, etc.)

Thanks for the chance to win.

Irene García Díaz said...

Congrats on being included in such a great book! Thank you for the giveaway

Peggy said...

Modern quilting to me means finding inspiration in unique places and not being afraid to break the "quilting rules." I absolutely positively LOVE your quilt. Really.

Nancansew said...

Modern quilting is all about making new friends who love to sew!! How wonderful to share a passion and meet so many nice women! Love it... Mcantril@kc.rr.com

Andrew Bynumm said...

If you're into all that then maybe you guys should take a look at this http://fabricbanners.net.au/ because they have all the fabric materials that you can imagine. And that's just the beginning of it all. I have learned a lot from their ideas and it has helped me get better at my job.

Domac said...

Wow, I would love to win this book. Thankyou for the opportunity. Modern quilting is so fresh, exciting and anost anything goes - I love it.

Julie said...

Scrappy or Stash quilts are fun. I would love to win the book

Shar said...

I believe modern quilts are taking original blocks and making minor to major changes to them. It could be that you only have one block on the quilt.

JanetK said...

I am not sure I know what the definition is, but I love the use of negative space, dispensing with borders, and bright clean colors and prints and these are the elements I associate with modern style quilting.

Deb said...

Congratulations on being published! I think modern quilting is more and less than it's made out to be -

Christina Fairley Erickson said...

Thanks for hosting the Link party. For me, modern quilting is being able to go anywhere, do anything with your quilting. It can include 3-D, recycled materials, surface design, embroidery... just about anything, so long as it's layered and stitched together. :)

Cat from Raspberry Rainbow said...

I love your quilt!

I am very new to quilting (like this month I started making a quilt!)

Modern quilting to me is making it accessible to anyone, and everyone making quilts.

Béa said...

Thanks for the chance to win, I love the designs in this book.

Jacky said...

Love the chance to win a copy of the ebook. Your quilt looks great, really colorful and vibrant.

Donna K. from N. Texas said...

Your coloration of your quilt design really looks so fresh.

Swedish Scrapper said...

I think modern quilting is more than the new fabrics and their increased availability, but the fusion of ideas and creativity that come about for the big melting pot of blogs, flickr, pinterest, instagram, twitter.....

Maura Smith said...

I think modern quilting to me means; using traditional paradigms while incorporating ideas born in modern technology and the ever increasing opportunities presented by visual influences for pattern.
Thanks for the chance to win!

robin said...

Modern quilting means color and shapes 'outside the box'. Modern quilting is emotion and expression.

Susan Griffith said...

Modern quilting to me is bright, bold colors and simple piecing. I love your quilt and many others in this book. Thanks for the giveaway

Love this book.

hlberg said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win.

syfalkenstein said...

Pinspot said...

How fun! Congratulations on getting published! That must be so exciting.

Kathy Cvitanovich said...

"Modern Quilting" means "Be Yourself!"

MoeWest said...

It looks like a great book! Thanks for the chance to win a copy. I find it hard to define modern quilting. It is a less busy look with more use of solids.

Beach Quilter said...

Thanks for the chance to win! Your quilt is beautiful! Modern quilting means Freedom to me. Freedom to choose vivid colors and work them into a design that appears so simple, the colors take your breath away.

Vicki in MN said...

Modern quilting-I think of solids and lots of negative space to quilt in.

Parm G said...

Modern Quilting means eye candy (fabric colours) leads to delightful quilts and quilting.

Hi, I'm Suz!! said...

Hugs ~~ Suz

charlotte said...

Im just learning about modern quilting, but to me its a find your own groove and make it work interpretive type thing. thanks for the chance to win.

Andee said...

I have attempted to define modern quilting but it is elusive...you know it when you see it. It is sometimes a traditional pattern just done in different, unexpected colors, or with more white/grey space and sometimes is something completely different!

Bec Clarke said...

Modern quilts always look clean to me, with the use of lots of solids and some patterns mixed in.

Bec Clarke said...

Modern quilts always look clean to me, with the use of lots of solids and some patterns mixed in.

Becky said...

To me, modern means clean colors, making negative space a "character" in the quilt story, and putting a fresh twist on what makes a block. Thanks for the giveaway!

booboomac said...

I've recently discovered this wonderful quilting community of bloggers! It's been so much fun! The bonus is with this book promo I've discovered a few quilters I hadn't discovered!

Aliceart said...

Modern quilting to me means bright colors, nontraditional patterns, graphic design, negative space. Any or all can make a quilt modern to me.

Rachel said...

I think modern quilting just means a new take on what already exists - perhaps more solid colours or geometric prints. But, really, nothing is actually "new" except for the interpretation.

Mie said...

I love the bright colors and seeing old blocks/patterns in a new perspective.

Tiffany said...

Modern quilting - taking old ideas and revamping them. I also think its the use of colors that defines a modern quilt.

Kimberly said...

Beautiful quilts! To me, modern quilting is stepping out of your boundaries and constantly trying something new, maybe something you wouldn't have ever thought of doing.

Joni said...

Oh I want this book! Modern Quilting to me is stretching the negative space and delighting the eye with pops of color on neutral bases. I have always followed a traditional line in my quilting, but as I fall deeper in love with the modern designs, my horizons are stretching! Thank you for sharing your fabulous designs with us all.

Kathy Lancaster said...

Quilting lets me express myself.
