    What's your style?

    Traditional, Contemporary or Modern quilting, I love them all. I can't seem to focus on just one style. Anybody else feel this way?

    Same here, still new to quilting and have not yet developed as "style". I love them all.

    I really love all styles and seem to swing wildly from project to project. Sometimes just the fabrics I have pulled have lying around is what inspires me. Just recently I have been working on folk art type quilts.

    My favorite quilts to make are scrappy quilts, but they come in all styles. I think it's kind of fun to mix styles--traditional fabrics in a contemporary setting or vice versa. I'll try just about anything once.

    Whatever rocks my boat. I know that I lack in many techniques to try different styles but I will get there, eventually.

    I make quilts from patterns that excite or intrigue me. Traditional, modern etc. it doesn't matter to me if it catches my eye, matches my skills or stretches them a little, I put it on my bucket list.

    My style will fluctuate.. it seems if I just finished a modern..then my next one will be traditional. I go back and forth. Once I met a quilter who told me I was not a true"artist" as I had not developed a distinct "style". I beg to differ with that concept.

    Me too!! I couldn't have said it better.

    I don't have a clue. I just make whatever appeals to me.
