Modify Tradition

What do these beauties all have in common?


They were all plucked from the Modify Tradition blog! Have you heard about the Modify Tradition project? It's the brainchild of Jennifer & Crystal, who embrace the most traditional block patterns and transform them by using bright and modern fabrics. The effects (as you can see) are stunning.

Did you know that Modify Tradition also hosts quilt-alongs? They recently started their second quilt-along, and I am sure it's not too late to catch up. This post should help you get started ...

Much to my own chagrin, I haven't been able to take part in this quilt-along. However, the awesome Modify Tradition blog and Flickr pool are two of my favorite sources for inspiration & eye candy. So head on over and tell the ladies that Quilt Dad says hello!

  2. Those bold fabrics really make great blocks! My favorite is the last block. Love the squares and rectangles.

  3. I've been admiring their bee/work too. I think it's an awesome idea! Definitely considering using one (or more!) of their blocks as my own for my month in one of my bees. Now...which one...?
