    Hello all,

    i look at myself your beautiful Quilts for some time. I noticed that nearly all Quilts make with traditional design.
    Sew some of you also modern Art-quilts?

    Welcome! :-)

    There are a few very talented people in here who make art quilts. The majority are more traditional though. Do you have any photos of your work?

    My current projekt is an applique with muppet (is not really a artquilt, but it is not traditional also, or? )

    I will make a few more pictures tomorrow...

    Those blocks are absolutely ADOREABLE! hadta giggle when I saw them. :)
    I don't know what "type" of quilt you'd call it other than adorable.

    You've done a great job and captured the muppets perfectly :)

    love your sesame quilts - they are very cute.

    i'm an Art Quilter but i prefer to say i'm a Contemporary Quilt Artist since i think all quilts are a work of art.

    the only difference to me is either its traditional or contemporary but its all art.

    Cute blocks!!
    I am more of a traditional quilter. I hope to dabble someday in the "Art" style of quilting.
