I love the so-called ‘Modern Quilt’ aesthetic:  clean design lines, simple fabrics, negative space (=quilting space, IMHO).  This is my first attempt at such a piece.  It is raw-edge fusible applique on a field of gray muslin.  Yes, I cut a hole in it.  I call it Modern Love.

    Love it too, apropos for mothers day and some mothers have holes in their hearts because the children have predeceased THEM
