38. The 3 Types of Quilters, Which One Are You?

If you’d rather read, check out the transcript here.

There are 3 types of quilters:

 

Traditional

These quilts are gorgeous.  What makes it traditional is both the quilt block construction and the fabrics used.  When it comes to blocks, think very classic star blocks and layouts that use sashing.  Fabrics tend to be muted colors.  Maroon and Navy and Mauve.  You’ll often hear the words, Amish and Reproduction when describing these quilts.

Modern

Modern quilts are defined by their bold colors and contemporary lines.  Colors and prints are typically full of whimsy in one manner or another.  Either super bright and playful solids or crazy peeled bananas and tabby cats, a la Tula Pink.

Modern Traditionalist

This is the category I fall into.  As the name suggests, its this cool hybrid version of the previous two quilt types.  Most modern quilters I know, actually think of themselves in this group.  These quilts are constructed with traditional methods and designs but usually use a riot of color.  Like Modern quilts use.

I worked with Nicole in a one on one environment on a large quilt. I have limited sewing experience and Nicole’s expertise was invaluable for this large project. Nicole is very patient and explained the different steps and their purposes clearly. She improved my original idea to better accomplish my overall goal. I highly recommend Nicole as an instructor and would personally have another session in a heartbeat!

I seriously didn’t even know the names of parts of my sewing machine before I worked with Nicole. She walked me through everything step by step. And it was amazing. She taught me the ins and outs of my machine and how to add each basic concept together. It was invaluable, because now I can figure things out and get creative without fearing the dreaded unravel!
