I love that you wrote about this. It has been a 'hot topic' in my emails lately. I just finished posting on 'When is an Art Quilt Not a Quilt?' I'm so glad I didn't do modern because you did it and did a fabulous job, too. Good for you and your research too!
I love modern quilts! Haven't made one yet, but I've been collecting fabrics for one. I love your pink and white quilt!
I am not so sure I agree with your definition of a modern quilt.... seems short sighted - simplistic.... way too arbitrary for such a massive topic...Do Nancy Crow and Victoria Finley make modern quilts.... I think they do and yet from your list it would seem they do not....
thanks for the link - I too like the modern quilts -
Love your blog, which I have just discovered. You're in my google reader list now.I think you've hit the nail on the head about modern quilts, but I might add that "liberated" quiltmaking takes it a step further, not worrying as much about rules but paying close attention to composition, color, and detail.
