As I experimented with this...
using this book as my guide...
Yes, a traditional pattern....called Hands All Around...and yet, my fabric choices make it only a cousin to the original antique shown in the book.
My contemplation is this: If I use a pattern to make a quilt today, is it not modern?
Does it have to be free form and geometric in design, like my Signals quilt, to be called modern?
Am I only a modern quilter when I create something liberated but a fresh traditional quilter when I lean toward repeat patterns using colorful fabrics? Ack! Maybe, I don't know who I am!
Maybe, I should just stick with "quilter".
What do you think?
