There’s been a lot of inspiring talk about modern quilting going on lately! I’m longing for a copy of The Modern Quilt Workshop: Patterns, Techniques, and Designs From the FunQuilts Studio by Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle. It just seems that with this book and the soon to be released book by Denyse Schmidt, that there will finally be some better reference for people who are interested in more than just traditional quilt design.
I’m so inspired by many of these contemporary quilters. Of course I love to look at Denyse Schmidt’s and the Fun Quilt’s designs for possible new ideas. I also love the simplicity of Lori Mason’s quilts, and the idea of using textiles like linen and wool to replace ordinary cotton.

I also recently discovered BeBeBold Quilts, based in Australia. They do a little more traditional design, but varied with modern elements. Some look like they could have been made in 1900, or last week–awsome.
