Modern Tradionalism quilts at QuiltCon

I think this is Stacy Day's Corsage created for the
Riley Blake Challenge with Amy Gunson's Roundabout
pattern as the design source. There were several versions of
this one.
I took these pictures on Sunday when time was running out and I find I  haven't been so disciplined in rationing the number of pictures taken and to compound matters I renamed the quilt photos  so that labels and quilt pictures became separated. Some were easier to match up than if there are any misapproriations I apologise and will be happy to substitute correct versions.
Karin Jordan's Melon Wedding Ring
The melon shapes were cut out with a Sissix
plate from roughly pieced strips.

Wildfire by Kirsty Cleverly
Log Cabin in 2 colours in varying proportions
set on point; asymmetric design morphing
from light to dark

Detail of Blue Spiderweb

Leslie Schmidt: Blue Spiderweb
She enjoyed making this exuberant version of this
traditional pattern in which the blocks spiral
out of control.

Detail of Dunes

Dunes by Jenna Brand inspired by Latifah
Saafir's Glam Clam quilt pattern but with
improvised curved inserts.

This is a "don't know"

I think this is by Latifah Saafir,
 She is the inspiration behind many bold
interpretations of curved patterns.

Shades of a distant Lancaster by Tomi Levin,
a controlled improvisation of the Amish
style using favourite solids.

Blueberries for Sal by Elisa  Albury
Deconstructed Bear's Paw blocks: two "children"
get separated from their mothers.

Christa Watson: Focal Point made following
advice to go more asymmetrical, create a cropped
design and include a focal point.

I think this is Kristen Shields' Fruity Star
in which the solids are string pieced with
 neutrals so that the tips might disappear
giving the impression of the star floating on
the background.
