    I bought 2 1/2 yards of backing fabric to make a bottom sheet for my California King bed and .5 yard for the binding of MES' quilt. Both have been used this afternoon. 
     At the shop today, the Mod Squad met. They are a Modern quilting bee. I listened in and realized that I am not and probably never will be a truly modern quilter! I love modern bright colors but I adore prints and traditional patterns. I don't particularly like pastels or pale pinks or reproductions or Thimble Berry or civil war or Auntie Grace which would not make me a traditional quilter either. I don't like sampler quilts either but am beginning to like scrappy patterns. I am just a mixed up Cajun quilter who likes what she likes and is indifferent to the rest.
Lator Gators.


  1. I love your description of yourself. I feel somewhere in between as well!

  2. It is hard to determine where we fit in the world of quilting. I also like traditional patterns and using scraps to make them. I tried my hand at modern quilting and it just wasn't me. I thought I was the only one who didn't like Thimbleberry fabrics!

  3. You go, Girl! I'm with you. Somewhere in between. Never did like to work with 30s (though I love to see the quilts), tired of CW, fell out of love with Thimbleberries years ago, but some of their newer stuff is OK. We all go through phases.

  4. Some days i am very very modern and others I am more traditional. And some days I just sleep in!


  5. There's room for every taste in the world of quilters, isn't there! I'm "modernitional," a description coined by designer Tula Pink to describe a blend of modern and traditional.
