Pix From QuiltCon

EQuilter’s Luana Rubin has posted her pictures from QuiltCon in Austin, Texas.  I think the intent of the modern quilting movement is summed up by this quilt made by Elizabeth Hartman.

I’ll leave you to browse the pictures, but here are some that struck me.

I’ve made this up in very different colors, but I do love yellow and gray together.

This quilt is the quintessence of negative space to me.

For me these two quilts sum up what’s different about modern quilting.  The one on the left takes the traditional block structure and fills each block with unique asymmetrical symbols.  The bubble one cuts off edges and uses the darker gray to give weight to the composition.  Both use solid color fabrics.

I’ll be interested to see how this movement evolves.  Some of the quilts exhibited seem like traditional quilts made up in non-traditional fabric while others are more like art quilts with unique original designs.
