Contemporary Traditionalist

25 blocks like this...


came together to make this top (needs pressing).


The last step will be a simple border from the white background and a bit of the gray polka dot then it will be ready for quilting.  I even have the backing fabric.

I recently heard this term, Contemporary Traditionalist, and I think it is a good description of the direction my quilting style is going. Traditional blocks and techniques in contemporary fabrics, colors, and settings.  I like it.

Very nice. Was it hard getting the small grey sashings to line up?

I agree that Contemporary Traditionalist describes you- or at least this quilt! How charming it is; and I love how those points break into the gray border. Just lovely. Well done!

Beautiful! Reminds me of sea glass. Will be a lovely calming summer time quilt. Love how the star went into the gray polka dot

Think that is a great choice for fabrics and yes, love this type of traditional blocks with this type of fabrics. Great top and thanks for sharing.

Oooh, I LOVE those blocks! And that phrase -- I think a lot of us fall into that bucket. I'll always love the traditional patterns the most, but it sure is fun to work with the new fabrics!
