Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland launched!

This weekend Sarah from Fairyface designs and Cindy from Fluffy Sheep Quilting launched the Modern quilt Guild of Ireland - how exciting!
If you're based in Ireland why not join? I've filled out my registration form
and think it will be an exciting time for Quilters in Ireland!
Modern Quilt Guild of Ireland
I find myself torn between traditional and modern patchwork and quilting.
On the one hand, I love the traditional work - I just adore folk art inspired patchwork.
On the other hand, I find modern patchwork and quilting styles so fresh and minimalistic.
At the minute, I think I'll sit on the fence and enjoy all styles!
So what's your choice?
Modern or traditional?
