Welcome back to a showcase of some of my favorites from Quilt Con. If you missed my pervious post, it's over here.
Here in Albuquerque, quilters are rather inundated with the southwestern theme. Kokopelli's, chili peppers, and pottery motifs abound. Even so, a less literal interpretation of the theme can really give a nice flavor to modern quilts. I love how the half square triangles transition Flight Path from one background color to another.
Heather Pregger has an entire series of Turning Fork quilts. It's genius how she takes a minimalistic block and repeats it across the quilt in different values to make an overall impression.
A gradation of color and/or value within modern quilts can really draw a viewer's focus. Love in the digital age accomplishes this well. Icy Waters is another example of this concept.

I enjoy how Wake Up! Wake Up! is one part Emerald City and one part stained glass window. Trapezoids deserve some respect!
What do you get when you put a lovely trim in the enlarger machine from Honey, I Blew Up the Kid? Eggs and Darts, of course!
Let's do a double play on the enlarger machine, shall we?
