The title pretty much describes my two newest quilts. The first is "Round Pegs, Square Holes" and is very colorful. I finished it yesterday (binding and label).The second one is another in the Nursery Rhymes series, "A Pocketful of Posies." I imagine the purple squares as pockets and, of course, the flowers are posies. I think this is number five of the series.
The squares are deep purple and the flowers are different shades of yellow. I quilted it with a feather motif, then stippled around the flowers up to the feathers with a small stipple. Well, as small as I am able to stipple.
I did a little thread painting with a yellow thread mostly to make sure the raw-edge applique will hold. The iron-on adhesive is really thick but I don't trust it. I trust stitches. I really don't like it because it makes the applique very stiff but I'm having some problems finding the brand I like.
What do you think? Aren't they modern? Do you like to make modern quilts? How do you define modern quilts versus traditional quilts?
