Modern quilts are not my favorite, but use of color perks me up. At a recent sew-in, a friend introduced me to a book "Material Obsession" by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. The book highlights modern quilts and has a remarkable use of color.
I have just ordered 2 books and hope to order more from this pair of writers.

Circle in the Square is holding their Quintessential Quilt Show beginning Sunday at the University City Public Library. Tonight we hung quilts and their was a lot of floor work done. Luckily, my daughter and her son came along and rolled around on the floor to hang quilts from the 2nd floor.
It created quite a stir in the library.

This years -New Year's resolution was to finish a UFO per month and this is one of those UFO's.
The border or borders still need to be added. Those are more difficult. The border has to fit the quilt. So far nothing I have tried makes the quilt sing. With my huge stash- there has to be the right fabric here somewhere.
Happy "sane" or "crazy" quilting!
Also, I have been working on my "fan" crazy quilt and will update you tomorrow on it's progress.

I really love the color combinations. What do you think??? Color really makes a difference.
