Groovy Baby! Mod Quilts....
I've discovered something new (at least new to me) - Mod Quilts and Paintbox Quilts. It was love at first site.
In my travels across the internet I stumbled upon Oh Frasson! and there -- before my very eyes were quilts created from the the most striking color pallettes I've ever seen. Using black and white, white or Kona solids, this gal mixes color and hue like a master. And the way she finishes the backs of her quilts - perfection.
I'm not gonna lie - I've always loved old fashioned quilts - applique, traditional piecing, Amish, etc. but I love them even more when the old meets the new -- traditional piecing or applique that uses uses bold, contemporary prints and bright colored fabrics. Double that with contemporary design piecing AND the wild color schemes - and THAT is something that gets my attention.
