From the quilts I've been seeing on my Flickr groups, there is a trend toward large widely spaced prints, solids, and lots of lights, meaning white. It seems this is a trend among young quilters (under 35). I also see it catching on with some of us older quilters. They often do not use patterns, but if they do, they are using comtemporary quilt patterns (not traditional blocks). Is it time to try some new ideas? I will never give up blocks, but I could branch out. I would like to expand my horizons. Onwards and upwards!!!!
