Disclaimer: Regular readers know I like quilts to have energy, vitality and verve. I like things that grab me emotionally. "Modern" quilts, by and large, do nothing for me. For me a lot of them are "Meh". I feel they are often "half-baked." You are welcome to disagree, but I am entitled to my opinion. Don't bother commenting if you want to tell me I am "wrong." There is no right or wrong.
There were some that I liked.
But the quilts that really made my heart sing were the ones made by two of my idols, Gwen Marston and the late Molly Upton.
And OMG, look how big they are. Remember there were no long arm quilting machines back then, and cottons were just calicoes. Upton used everything, cottons, velvet, corduroy, wool. And these were hand quilted. She was a true visionary.
