I am really enjoying seeing the new modern designs that are popular now. These inspire me. The simplicity and lots of negative space relates to my current series:
The negative space is where the bridges will extend.
Recently, I decided to make a modern design as a baby gift.
The fabric on the lower right inspired the quilting motif.
I never mark my work prior to quilting. I prefer to work free hand. The frames around the outside are more traditional than modern, but I think they set of the center rather well.
I have never attempted so many free hand circles before, but they came out good.
The baby’s name is BROOKE. I added this detail to the center.
What I like the most is that the design is not limited to BABY. This design can span time.
The baby’s first and last name starts with a B.
The fabric (lower right) has the shape of the letter B. So, I used this shape and repeated it in various patterns. This worked really well.
A modern heirloom that turned out great.
