QuiltCon-Modern Traditionalism

Now we have quilts from the Modern Traditionalism category from the QuiltCon exhibition.  We will follow in the coming weeks with all the categories, and then the special exhibits. I’ll be putting the prize winners for each category at the end in case you’re wondering! The rest of the quilts are in a random order.

These quilts are as described– modern but incorporating a traditional quilt block pattern.   Entrants to the show could submit as many quilts as they wanted, and after they were selected, the quilts were put into categories by QuiltCon. What makes them “modern”? Always a good discussion. For this purpose QuiltCon describes modernizing as “applying design elements such as alternate grid work, asymmetry, color, scale.”

Next up after this, we will have all the quilts from the Improvisation category. While you’re waiting, feast on Modern Traditionalism:
