    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?

    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.

    [IMG]http://i49.tinypic.com/2qdzthy.jpg[/IMG] With well choosen fabrics this can be a stunner. But it isn't really modern.

    This I think might qualify with different color choices.

    Those two went to the same pic, tkhooper! I was getting dizzy looking at dozens of Google Image results for Quilt Pattern. I have stopped looking for now. This is a pain!!

    Oh dear. sorry about the goof with the links.

    i can just imagine what you are going through. I've just stopped and look a couple of times for an hour or so each. That was enough.

    I hope you find something that fits your requirements and that is exactly what you want.

    Well, luck at last!! I found a great source of beautiful quilt patterns, an online Canadian shop. Here's the link for anyone who wants to look. They have fabulous quilt patterns, very reasonable, and they are so generous they give away free downloads for block patterns.

    Here it is: The Rabbit Factory

    http://www.therabbitfactory.com/

    I love 2 of their quilts, and I know 1 or the other will be our guild's Opportunity Quilt. Thanks for all the help, gals. I so appreciate your suggestions.

    Elly Sienkiewz has a book on papercut applique. I can see some of these utilized with up-to-date fabrics.
