Jolene Klassen’s Autumn Circle Quilt is filled with gorgeous color and playful use of print fabrics. It’s also a wonderful interpretation of the classic Wagon Wheel block.
MQG: What do you think makes your quilt modern?
Jolene: I don’t know that I would technically call this quilt modern. But I think the one modern element in all my quilts, including this one, is my way of approaching the so called “rules” of quilting. I believe that the rules are to be respected, but not necessarily followed! There is no ‘wrong’ way to make a quilt, whether it’s construction or design. The sky is the limit, and I always want to keep my mind open to new concepts and ideas, while still making things that I love!
Jolene: To answer this question I looked through all my previous quilts, as well as my favourite quilts on Flickr and Pinterest. I came up with squares! As in plain patchwork squares, nine patches, trip around the world, and more.
