I grew up in a house filled to the brim with quilts. My house has its fair share too, thanks to my mom who has been quilting for over twenty years. From amish to Japanese-inspired, she has tried her hand at various methods and learned the art of shibori dying before it became trendy. Her quilts have won many awards and been published in books (see here and here). My own appreciation for this art has grown over the years too. My kids both learned to quilt from grandma and have even shown their own creations at the San Mateo Art Fair (to second place and honorable mention distinctions). Lately, I’ve noticed that quilts have been making a surprising comeback. These modern styles sport an organic, minimal look that seem to focus on simpler elements, like color blocking and stitching. March featured some of these contemporary styles (quilted by my mom and friends). Check out these other modern quilts that caught my eye.
