Circles and Trying out this Modern Quilt Movement


Here is an update on my circle quilt.  I am really excited to turn this into a workshop.


I have had a number of comments on my 'circles' of free motion quilting.   All I can say is relax and practice.  


I am planning on using these for the binding.  


I am sure most of you have heard about the 'modern quilt movement' shaking the quilt world.   In Canada, the Canadian Quilters' Association has created a new Modern Quilt Category in their National Juried Show.   

I am thinking of entering a quilt in it, if I can come up with a design.  I was playing around today making a modern quilt block.   I came up with this, and was thinking I could make a little tutorial out of it for you, what do you think?

I love your block Jackie!
I'm guessing the squares in your strips are randomly placed ???

Wow! Neat modern block! Love your cool confidence about entering into the jilt show!

I love the block but I really don't understand what makes a modern quilt. I've been checking them out online and in most cases they don't look all that different from "regular" quilts. I am envious of your circles...

Wow, you really do have the circles figured out...looking good!
I really like your modern block, and I didn't get a chance to tell you how much I loved your "stamp" down below. Love all those dots!

You're off to a beautiful start! Looks so nice. I can only imagine all the hard work and patience that goes into quilt making.
