Last year our modern group was asked to do a demo of Modern Quilting. I happen to think that Modern Quilting isn't something you can demonstrate, it is more of an aesthetic (a set of principles underlying the work of a particular artist or artistic movement).
We decided that we would have a display of various blocks and quilts that illustrated modern design elements. The next blog posts will have the different blocks and quilts that I made for the "demo" we did.
I made these two Covington blocks from the Quilt Local book by Heather Jones, they are about 20"x20" In the book Heather said that she was inspired by The Ascent, a residential building in Covington, Kentucky which was designed by architect Daniel Libeskind and built in 2008
It is interesting how they look quite different when using only solids or when a print is combined with a solid. I think four of these blocks pieced together would make a nice small quilt, I must try it out in EQ8 and see what it would look like.
