    Is This Quilt a "Traditional" or "Innovative" Design?

    I'm going to enter this quilt in a show and the application asks if the quilt is "Traditional Design" or "Innovative Design." Here is what the application says: "Traditional and Innovative refer to design, not to construction techniques. Innovative entries should emphasize innovation in design."

    I have no idea what these terms mean and don't know which one to pick for the application. Which do you think it is?

    I can't help with your question, but I wanted to say how fantastic this is. Love the floating cubes and your color choices. Good luck at the show!

    I see lots of traditional blocks presented in an innovative way, so I would say innovative. It's a wonderful quilt, and I'd love to know more about it. Is it an original design, or is there a pattern available? Was it hard to make?

    Wonderful! Absolutely gorgeous and most importantly unique. I would classify it as innovative. Good luck. I have not seen other entries into the show but I seriously think that you have a winner.
