Do you have available any “modern” quilting designs? I have just completed piecing a Mid-Century Modern designed quilt top and am looking for a good quilting pattern to use. The designer suggested a Baptist Fan pattern that I do like but the recipients of the quilt i think would prefer a pattern with less curves and more straight lines. They are real fans of the Mid-Century Modern architecture and design. Thank you.

Good Morning Kathy, My email is betsey.langford@americanquilter.com. If you’d like to send me a picture of your top we will see what we come up with. Thanks, Betsey
