    Well, I just finished this queen sized quilt for my son. Pieced on my Sapphire 850 and quilted on my Juki TL98E. This quilt was fun, my son is getting it for his "first home" gift. He is a contemporary kinda guy, in the military for over 18 years, preparing to possibly retire. I found this pattern in Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting Mag around 2008. Colors are Black, white with a Jinny Beyer print of gray, black and red.
    Also is a pix of a wallhanging I made called "The Many Blue Moons of Argos" for my DH. This was from Louise Smith book.Hope you enjoy them!

    The quilt is outstanding. It is very contemporary in its colors, but at the same time a bit of a throw back to the atomic fabrics of the 50s and 60s.

    I love your quilt. It is so cool. Very contemporary. I love the black and white with a touch of red. Your wall hanging is beautiful. I love blue and that is such a cool pattern.

    I love modern design too and it's sometimes hard to find quilt patterns geared towards minimalism. Good job.

    Your son's quilt is really neat. I've never seen any like it. Wallhanging is great too.

    Beautiful! Love the clean lines in your son's quilt! Saw this in the F&P magazine, it's on my list too :)

    Great effect with all the circles in your DH's wall hanging.

    Great work, well done!

    Your work is great.

    I like the quilt you made for your son. I've seen the pattern and it is on my VERY LONG 'want-to-try' list.
