    I like it! I am just not a traditional pieced quilt type of girl! I'm not saying that I don't have a respect for those quilts (and their makers) and that I don't find some of them beautiful, it is just not my cup of tea.

    I have mixed feelings about it. I like some of the quilts. Others make me wonder why the designer thought it was a good idea. Some seem like sloppy piecing to me...just odds and ends sewn together. There doesn't seem to be any artistry or skill involved in the making. On the other hand, when people are pressed for time because of young children, work, or school, it is a creative outlet that they can enjoy without stressing over the details involved in traditional piecing. Like so many other creative endeavors, to each his own.

    I'm straddling the line myself. I love the modern quilts, and have also enjoyed making the traditional quilts. I've found that many of my projects are now a blend of both.

    Usually - my quilts are gifts so I use the process that fits the receiver.

    I like it because it keeps quilting alive and kicking.

    Quilting is like all art forms. There is room for everyone. I will like some things and not like some things, but in the end we are all quilters. If we all liked the same things, life would get pretty dull.

    Personally, most super modern things are not for me. I'm a traditional girl, but I still respect the work and creativity that goes into the quilt.

    I walk through quilt shows and am amazed that what is fabric and thread could be a painting of water colores.

    I am thrilled to see true pieces of old patterns.

    the long arms in home has changed the quilting into a home industry. am amazed that these are available and are purchased, have room for them in homes.

    So, mixed bag of emotions. Amazed but always love seeing the old.

    Bet there is medicine for that ! hah!

    quilting is like painting - some like Picasso and some like Thomas Kinkade. Some like both. It is a medium.
