Big, bold, simple designs that often use solid colors have become the hallmark of the modern quilts by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle or the Modern Quilt Studio, Oak Park, IL (formerly Fun Quilts).
The Modern Quilt Guild’s QuiltCon 2013 is over after an impressive four days of classes, lectures, exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops, give-aways, and more. All of you who followed my QuiltCon journey on Facebook got a sneak peek of the event. Back in Chicago I cannot stop looking at the great quilts on my camera!
I’ve stitched together a lot of different projects from garments and wearable art to accessories and stuffed toys – but never really gave quilting a try. In fact, if you had asked me a few years ago if I made quilts my answer would have been, “Quilts? Are you crazy, I am not a quilter!”
