After attending my local guild’s quilt show this past weekend, my daughter is thrilled that I am giving her my Hugs ‘n Kisses quilt.
Jenna’s Hugs ‘n Kisses by Christa Watson
While there was a “modern” category at the show for the first time ever, there were quite a few quilts entered into other categories that I would also classify as modern. Here they are for you to enjoy (and you will notice many of them won ribbons as well):

Wow! So much to see in these quilts I’ll be looking at them for a while. I really like the background transition from light to dark, that’s such a great effect! I also love how brave Marcella was to leave a few blocks empty to create tension in “a little bit modern”.
