    I love modern quilts. This isn't a new trend. Ghee Bend quilts made in the late 1800's were full on modern. http://www.google.com/search?q=gee+b...w=1021&bih=802

    Me too! I love the creativity that goes into the modern quilts, as well as the creativity of the traditional quilts. Both are loved and appreciated by me.

    I love all of it traditional , and modern art quilts. I just get dissapointed that some of the major shows have chosen a predominance of modern , leaving a very small percentage for traditional. Seeing great representations from all aspects of the quilting world is what I expect in a great show.

    Many in my family would prefer modern/contemporary to traditional quilts. I love and appreciate both :D:D:D

    I joined the Chattanooga Modern Quilt Guild which formed in March of this year. I personally do not like the Gee's Bend quilts but have seen some modern quilts I do like so have mixed emotions but thought I would give it a look see. Then the tornado destroyed our meeting place (quiltingboard.com/t-119563-1.htm) and we haven't gotten back together yet! Looking forward to getting together again since the shop recently reopened.

    each generation of quilters define the style of quilts for that era.

    that's why civil war quilts look different from 30s quilts etc.

    i'm sure when the 30s quilts were first starting out the previous generation didn't all jump on board with the new style.

    i personally prefer to do my own work instead of following premade patterns but i can appreciate any quilt that is well balanced with color and composition and is constructed well.

    :roll:

    It's not that I don't like the quilts or the style, which I describe as
    "Gee's Bend with more disposable income."

    I think some newer quilters just got fed up with the quilt police, and/or didn't feel comfortable with the demographics of most quilts guilds, and wanted to form their own group to reflect that change.

    Also, a whole new generation of younger fabric designers started designing for the larger manufacturers, and connected with an audience.

    Not my taste personally, but so what?
