Contemporary Quilting ecourse follows on from last week’s Modern Quilting ecourse launch. It’s another in the 100 designs series. Let me first explain the difference. I talked about modern quilts last week – the negative space and clever quilting and minimalist look. Contemporary quilts tend to use traditional techniques with a twist bringing a modern look to them. For example, that classic log cabin might just have become wonky.
It’s great for traditional quilters who want something more fitting for their home but do not like the look of an actual modern quilt. Of course you can like both, I know I do. It’s also perfect for people who are very clever at piecing because you can use technically challenging piecing, not necessarily working in standard blocks.
You can treat the whole quilt as a blank canvas and not in a traditional way at all.

THE BUMPER START TO THE NEW YEAR CONTINUES
It’s the end of week six of 2021 and this ecourse is my fourth new introduction of the year. Like the modern quilting ecourse, it has been in the planning stage for some years. I am so happy to bring it to fruition.
WHAT’S COMING NEXT?
You think I am having a rest? Chance would be a fine thing. I am well into preparation for a new and glorious gardening ebook. Well, three actually, but one at a time, I am sadly only one woman.
Two quilted jackets are nearing completion. Just one more and they all go into a Quilted Jacket Making ecourse. One shawl has been finished this week and another half finished. I have knitted many over the years and think I might do a Shawl Collection pattern ebook.
Then I must find time to finish the Egyptians Textile Inspirations ebook, third in the series; not to mention the Medieval Dress Textiles ebook, both started at the very end of last year.
Lockdown? What lockdown? It’s just time to create. See you next week.
