    Sorry that a) I didn't know his gender and b) that I haven't heard of him. However, rather strange to ask a question then not have time to engage in the ensuing discussion. :?

    I say whatever floats your boat. Some of them are magnificent, some are dogs, but it is the same with traditional pieced quilts. I do what I like, you do what you like. Variety is the spice of life.
    (let's see how many cliches I can fit into one post)

    I did read the request for my opinion. I will give it but am trying to get kits ready for three major quilting events and devoting time to that. But on the side and after thinking about the "Modern Quilt Movement" I realized I been doing it for a number of years and didn't know it.
    Another note. It really isn't that new, just a new focus on a quit/pattern/design stye. But more later when I have some time to really think about it.

    Actually, the Gee's Bend Quilts that are shown in your link were made mostly after 1935-1940, with a large majority of them made in the 1950s, 60s & 70's ...
    No doubt their ancestors DID make quilts for use in the 1800's, but those quilts are not in this 20th century group.

    I've developed a real appreciation for these quilts and their makers :thumbup: :thumbup:
    The Gee's Bend Quilts shown are not from the 1800's, they date from 1930s - on. The earliest quilt in the group is about 1935, and the majority were made in the 1950s, 60s & 70s. Most of the GB quilt makers were born between 1920-1950. :)

    Thanks for stopping in here, Holice. I think the subject has been pretty well discussed and been interesting.

    If I were a betting person, I'd bet that some quilt kits are put together by the fabric manufacture just to sell their product. Some combinations have NO appeal to me at all - none what so ever.

    Yes, I agree that some quilt kits/patterns that we see online are put out to sell a product line. I ran across one pattern recently that I really like, but my son and I agree that the color combinations are horrific. It does speak to me as being a "modern" quilt. I'm working on recreating it with a color palette that I like as I think the pattern itself is great.

    Cheers, K
