"In the Garden"
My tile quilt is going on tour! It will join the NYC Metro Mod Guild traveling exhibit as an example of "what modern quilting means to me," More on this exhibit here at Original Sewing and Quilt Expo. I think of myself as a modern quilter because I am always open to new methods and materials. However, I do not discard traditional ideas which I love. I simply add on as I go. Tile quilts have been around since the 19th century, but my version showcases new fabrics, threads, and design. It's been a lot of fun playing with Kaffe Fassett colors and the new grays.
