    Our quilt guild does an opportunity quilt every two years, and I am going to have to find the pattern for our 2010 show. I want a truly modern and "majestic" pattern with lots of applique, because that's what our people love. But I want MODERN, not traditional.

    Anyone have sources of patterns you can recommend? I have been looking for weeks, and still haven't found anything I just stop breathing over!! ;)

    Modern and Majestic are kind of general terms. I'm not really getting a picture.

    But I do like a challenge.

    Here is one that I like. It definitely fits the majestic catagory in my mind. But I'm not sure about modern. What do you think?

    That's absolutely in the direction I was thinking. Very striking!! I'll keep that one in mind.

    check out the books available from Dover. They have HUGE amounts of books on everything and many I've thought would make awsome applique quilts.

    Well I might as well add that I think the geisha panel that I bought is going to be awesome. Here is a link to the basic pattern.
