This modern piece is somewhat a sequel to my "Squared Away" quilt. It took me out of my comfortable 'design box'. I designed it for value contrast, open space, and simple lines on the off-white/ivory colored background. I’m intrigued by the Modern Quilt movement and enjoy seeing the new works coming from the quilting community. The vertical and horizontal lines of colored thread in the body of the quilt and the bits of color in the pieced binding add interesting elements to this piece.
