What's Modern Part 2

Many quilters today are creating quilts with pieced backs. Those backs alone are works of art, and many times I find them to be more appealing than the front of the quilts!

Most of these pieced backs exhibit an irregular use of space. I definitely file this in the "modern" category, simply because it's different and completely not traditional. The off-kilter placement of the patchwork lends a crisp, geometric feeling, much like these quilts I found on google.

Check out these other examples of quilts that use space in an innovative or irregular way.
