SLMQG Dresden Hop - Winner!

And the winner of my EZ Dresden Ruler and Joel Dewberry prints...

(sending a note)

Congratulations!  Here's her response to the question... what makes a "Modern" quilt? 

"I think simplicity is often a characteristic of modern quilts,
as shown is frequent use of solids and large scale.
It doesn't always work that way, though. I just know modern when I see it...."

And thanks to all of you for your great comments and responses.  To me,
"Modern" =  Everything old is new again. 
Like my kids listening to 70s music, new to their ears, but I know all of the lyrics.  "Ba-de-ya, say do you remember, Ba-de-ya, dancing in September..." 

Now, with all the inspiration you've seen, and how easy to use the dresden ruler, (EZ, that is!) it's your turn to make a dresden project and enter it in the quilt show on Sept 1st - 6th for some  AWESOME prizes and opportunities!!  See for all the details!

By the way, here is a link to my tutorial all about preparing your shapes for applique' over at Riley Blake Designs:
