Simplicity, yet sophistication of design
Clean lines of squares, rectangles, and half-square triangles
Crisp, clear, bold, bright colors
Gray and whites as neutral colors
Solids combined with a touch of prints
Stylized flowers, paisley, stripes, graphic prints
Use of coordinating fabrics
Improvising with traditional techniques
While modern quilters enjoy simplicity of design, they prize proficiency. Often the simplicity affords both beginners and advanced quilters opportunities to hone quilting techniques and skills. Modern quilters prize high quality.
