Modern Quilting

Modern Quilting

Modern quilts are differentiated from traditional quilts by use of bold colors, often only using solid colors, high contrast, use of negative space, improvisational piecing, alternate grid work and even minimalism. Some modern quilters like to take traditional quilt designs and take a twist by use of fabric, color and contrast.
