Modern Quilts, Love Them or Hate Them. I like the simplicity of modern patterns and the expanse of negative space. This piecemaker used a pop of yellows in the quilt, just enough. It’s like looking at a B & W photo where just one element has been colorized. I used a random angular fill across the quilt to contrast the right angles. It give the gray background lots of texture. Perfect gift for a grandson and his bride.
