A bit of a late post, but I wanted to share some of my favorite quilts at the recent Chicago Show - yeah, it came back! It was missed the last couple of years when it relocated to Ohio.
The surprise is that there were many modern quilts, and I was thrilled to see them. The modern quilt movement is just incredible, in my opinion. We are witness to an entirely new way of approaching the quilt medium. It is so fresh, and, I must say, traces it's roots directly to the liberated methods of Gwen Marston. I truly believe that she broke ground for what we are seeing. I'm curious as to what you think.
Here are some of my favorites...
