    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.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

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

    I would have to say my style is mostly contemporary. I'm not crazy about the modern quilts lack of pattern. I don't care for any of the reproduction styles of fabrics, 30s, civil war, etc and I don't care much for the patterns that went with those styles of fabrics.

    I consider myself a newbie still to quilting, 3 yrs of quiltmaking, so there are still so many quilts that I want to make and all different styles. I've made a traditional sampler quilt, a bargello, and everything inbetween, with the exception of paper piecing. I love them all and can't wait to finish the current WIP so I can get on to the next! Quilting for me is a form of therapy....makes me focus so the stress just melts away (except when ripping!).

    Whatever strikes my fancy on any given day. Right now I'm doing scrappy because I need to use them up. I have made a lot of kaliedoscope quilts though.

    I love all the traditional patterns, I just seem to gravitate toward them, but if I see a pattern I like, I make it. I finished the pattern Eldon this summer. I do like the more intriquet patterns tho.

    No I am more traditional, not really into modern. I do like some contemporary but still stick mostly to traditional

    I want to do almost all quilts I see, but there isn't enough time left in my lifetime. So I just go with whatever floats my boat at the moment.

    If I had to categorize myself it would be more traditional but not really set into one mode......

    I make mostly scrappy quilts, so I don't have a particular style. I am still trying to use up bins of inherited fabrics.
