MQX, Manchester, NH–Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson Quilts

I appreciate modern quilts, but am not drawn to making them.

However, the Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson (sisters) display of quilts at this spring’s MQX show was really fun to see.  And I certainly enjoy the sense of “style” and the lovely quilting seen in modern quilts.

I attempted to take a picture of most of the quilts shown.  Or pieces of these quilts anyway.  Those of you who have ipads or iphones can enlarge the pictures to see the fine detail of the quilting.

And, there is at least one book from these two amazing women.

Note that modern quilts often play with the juxtaposition of straight lines and curves.

And note the use of grey here, which is very “big” right now.
