So many of the Modern Quilts" I see are a size that I cant figure out what in hell they would be used for? Yet, the guild claims to make utility quilts? I see lap size quilt after lap size quilt come out of that group.... what is a 30 yo doing with 75 lap quilts in they house?
All those words do not take anything away from the quilts ... but - I dont see them as utility. I see them as decorative.
I love so many of the quilts I see that are called modern. I love them.
I need more than off center things and color blocks to call projects modern, though.
I need the products to use recycled fabrics. I cant have consumption and the prohibitive cost of new materials keeping the poor out of anything that calls itself modern.
Modern MUST include recycled goods and access to anyone who wants to join.
