I do know that a great deal of the lure of a "modern" quilt is that there can be so much room for quilting, although I'm sure I would fill that space with some very traditional quilting.
However, my mind usually draws a blank when I think about creating one. The one above actually isn't a quilt; it's the backing for the Sweet Spring Baby Quilt. I can do this sort of thing when designing a backing, but, apparently, not when it's going to be "the quilt."
Well, I suppose the other trick will be that when I do get around to designing a modern quilt for my home, it will need to fit into cottage style since that is the style that makes my home a haven for me---in contrast to my daughter, who longs for glassy, glossy modern just one step from sterile.
Maybe I just need to continue designing quilt backs until I'm comfortable enough to design a modern quilt front.....Hmmmmm.
P.S: Bonnie Hunter posted a linky party for "What's on your Bed?" yesterday, and I linked to my 'Home Sights' post.
It is so much fun to see what people have on their beds this week. I'm sure you'll want to take a look: quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/04/whats-on-your-bed.html
