DQN Quilt Show 2013 Modern Quilts

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.

    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”.
