The DMQG is having a lottery for modern quilt blocks at our next meeting. The way it works is that each 12.5" block you make in the official colors gets you one chance to win a set of 12 blocks, all of which have been made by the people participating. Sounds fun, right?
This one was hard for me because, while I consider myself a more modern quilter, I'm definitely scared of the abstract. I like patterns and seams that line up. I prefer geometric shapes. I like symmetry! Depending on who you ask, these are all requirements of "modern" quilting. I will say that I've been drawn to stronger colors, so maybe I'm warming to the trend :)
These are my two entries for the raffle. 12.5" x 12.5" each, no pattern required (eeps!)
The colors were supposed to be a light/medium grey for the background, and feature solids (or tone on tone that read as solids) turquoise, orange, lime, and fuchsia. I found inspiration on Flickr and then kind of did my own thing. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, and maybe I'll even be making more sometime soon...
