Those who know me might be surprised that I am interested in modern quilting. I usually make antique reproductions, and adore the old, finely made applique quilts. One of the things I like about them though, is the quirkiness you sometimes find on old quilts, almost to the point of looking abstract or modern.
Recently I joined a small group which concentrates on Modern quilting. I have learned a lot along the way, and do really like the clean lines of modern work. We have a quarterly challenge, and so far I have not been very productive. However, I combined the current challenge of using two colors with my own challenge of using circle shapes, and adapted a pattern of Brigitte Heitland's (Zen Chic, she also designs for Moda, and I love her patterns). So here is the top pinned, and as usual, I will hand applique this one since that is my preferred method:
I am also continuing on the PQ quilt, and will post more on that soon.
I will leave you with some beautiful grapes ready for harvest - it is harvest time on the Suedliche Weinstrasse. This photo is from last September.
