Quilters included. Modern shmodern, traditional, shmaditional.
I've been a quilter now for over 25 years and it has been more than interesting to watch the birth of the Mod Quilt Movement. I think it's fabulous for all of us.
I said it.
The Mod Movement has really been good for everyone. It has increased the number of people quilting. I has made traditional quilters look at work differently. Many Mod quilters are actually using traditional patterns (sshh, they don't know this yet). It has also created a lot of exciting new fabrics.
As a quilter I'm traditional like this:
wonderful podcast on Crafty Planner which featured her last week. Give it a listen, it is really good stuff. Listen while you bake, wrap gifts, write cards.
On the podcast I learned that she is going to be Quilt Con's 2016 keynote speaker. Isn't that wonderful. She is also going to have an exhibit at the 2016 Vermont Quilt Festival. So there you go, in one year Gwen is spanning the entire quilt world; Mod = Traditional = Mod = Traditional. One world really IS enough for all of us.
I have put a poll on the side bar. Which are you? Mod, traditional or like me BOTH? I can't wait to see how it comes out I hope you'll cast your vote.
See you next week with more Christmas Decore and our annual card.
