I've written a couple of times recently about "Modern Quilting," a movement that seems wildly popular but difficult to define. Several of you readers commented that it seemed reminiscent of the way we discovered quilting years ago when we were young, and that perhaps Modern Quilting is just a rebranding of a familiar old product to appeal to a younger demographic.
I promised to keep you posted on developments in my quest to get a handle on Modern Quilting, and that quest entails my regular reading of a new blog/magazine called Generation Q. So Generation Q decided to have an essay contest, and I decided to enter. Today the essays came up for votes, and I thought that in the spirit of shameless political pandering, which we seem to have a lot of this summer, I would ask for your votes.
