“Modern quilts” created thirty years ago

 

 Françoise Barnes, Art Deco, 1980
Collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum

Love the Art Deco look of this quilt.  Geometric quilts have always intrigued me. This will definitely go on my “to do” list. The sage green seems to soften everything..  Looks like a “Hidden Wells” quilt design.  I will definitely explore that area.

The Historically Modern Quilts  blog had an interesting post on Art Deco thirty years ago. Give it a read, you may get inspired.  I recognize a few names…..Nancy Crow, Jane Sassaman….
