What Makes It Modern?

I picked up this book at the library because it looked interesting, but the word “modern” in the title confused me.

German-quilt-bookIf I had to name the main technique in the book, I’d call it stack and slash. I’m not getting into a big discussion of what makes a quilt modern since it’s been done to death. I’ll just say that the quilts in the book don’t say “modern” to me and leave it at that.

The book was originally published in Germany and I wonder if something in the title got lost in translation.

Regardless, the quilts are very different from what I’ve seen everywhere else. I think that the sheer size of the quilting community worldwide can be overwhelming and I know I don’t usually see a lot of the trends in other countries. The info is out there, but I don’t take the time to look for it.

It’s a shame, really, and my loss. Something to think about.

And since this post has already gone way down the wandering path, I’d like to thank everyone for reading with a special thanks to those that have left comments. I enjoy the feedback and find my readers to be a wealth of information.

Now I’m off to do something quilty.
