I've had a lot of fun today, waiting for all my fellow swappers to open their parcels, and post pictures of their fabulous quilts.
It's amazing what a variety of styles of quilts have been made, with a fairly small group of people. I must go through and match everyone's preferences up with their quilts (made and received).
Purpose is the biggest factor in my choice of a quilt design. Bed quilt vs wall quilt is the major factor here. (In this swap, I have classed play quilts as bed quilts.)
My bed quilts are usually traditional blocks, usually pieced with a small amount of applique.
Wall quilts are quite different. For those, I make a picture.
Of the two, my wall quilts are much more modern.
Cass, I'm sorry, the quilts I made for you were not modern at all. Modern fabrics in the larger of the two, but still a traditional design. I don't know why I didn't think about this before.
Maybe the next bed quilt should be a purposefully modern design....
