Question for those who compete????

my pleasure ..thsnks for the invite! i do hope you enjoy the forum. check out the group pages, there are many groups that fall silent during the many swaps last couple years, but are great places to share ideas & information for learning & growing our quilty skills.

hi! having a down day so ...reading, which is my way of dealing with down days :)) ..you commented that you are interested in making modern quilts. are you familiar with Modern Quilt Guild? here is an interesting read i've wandered into this morning in which this writer discusses what defines a "modern quilt". thought you might find it interesting too. i don't make modern quilts, i am a traditional scrap quilter. i love vintage & antique quilts, but i have found the growing number of blogs & web sites for modern quilts interesting to follow.
