Now for the modern quilts (in my eye) that were not so labeled. In some cases it may have been a factor of size–big bed quilts have to hang on big frames (and the committee has the right to change categories). First the biggest, the queen sized quilt:
Tam’s quilt was quilted by Jolene Knight of Good Knight Quilts–I apologize for not having photos of the quilting–or of any of the quilting for this group.
Maureen used “It’s a Plus” pattern by Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic.
Marjorie Rhine reappears via her pattern, “Rotini.”
Kathleen used a Freddy Moran pattern, Dot Con, and the quilting is by Jolene Knight.
Sharon took a workshop with Kristen Shields but produced her own free form, liberated baskets and layout design. Kazumi Peterson did the quilting.
My photograph of the label doesn’t show Kathy’s title; it does show that the pattern came from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
These quilts each struck me as modern in some way or another. I am always interested in definitions and would welcome comments about the degree of modernness that you see or don’t see in them. Although I can get caught up in discussion of criteria, it doesn’t inhibit my quilting style or appreciation.
