Photos of Modern Quilting

So you think you may want to join South Florida Mod but still don't know what modern quilting really looks like? Here are some photos of my recent works, as samples:

Followed a free pattern online and used a Layer Cake of fabrics.
Classic English paper piecing using very large hexagons.
Log-cabin style nautical-themed blocks for a baby quilt.
Followed a purchased pattern and changed it slightly.
Scrappy star blocks for a virtual quilting bee.
Batik blocks from a kit.
Traditional medallion quilt made with original pattern and modern fabrics.
Online challenge quilt using surprise fabrics and original pattern.
As you can see, "Modern" quilting has a broad range of styles.  It encompasses updates to traditional patterns, using bold, bright colors, making "wonky" or freeform blocks, or anything simply made in "modern" times. It's all modern to us!

The internet has been an incredible source of inspiration for modern quilters, who use blogs and Flickr photo galleries to display their work! For more great examples of modern quilting, check out the Flickr gallery called Fresh Modern Quilts:
