Thank You for taking a look at my newest set of Modern quilting patterns.
The first four patterns are single motifs; you can set up as many repeats and rows as you need to fit your quilt. The two fan patterns should be set up in alternating rows and nested, as shown. Flat Spirals should also be set up in alternating rows. Feathers, Swirls, and Pearls sets up in straight rows, but I thought it was also interesting to flip every other row horizontally.
The link to the Store is at the bottom of the page.

The next six patterns are drawn to stitch across the quilt and back again. Size them for the width of the quilt, or use Fill Inside to crop off what you don't need.
If your machine is not happy stitching Right to Left, there is a revised version that will stitch only Left to Right and then move to the Left to begin the next row.
Please be sure you have checked Pause at Jump Stitch in your Controller Definitions so the machine will not drag a thread as it travels back to start again.
The zip file you receive will include both the continuous and the revised patterns. Use your mouse to pull deeply nested rows together. Look carefully at the left edge to see that the end of one row and start of the next row are connected.

I used Modern Beach Fence in the gusset of my Portfolio. I think it would make a great Modern Border, too.

The last two patterns, Modern Mix and Pebbles and Peppermints, are complex patterns that will run in a more traditional E2E style.
Modern Pebbles and Peppermints
Patterns drawn with lots of pebbles require nesting and the edges are rarely straight. I suggest finishing these types of edges with several echoes and then cropping those echo lines to fit the raw edge of the quilt. Photo above shows a detail of a cropped edge.
The single Peppermints pattern, as drawn, will look good on a small wall quilt. On a large bed quilt, I think the layout is better with the large peppermints toward the bottom. To achieve this effect, load the quilt horizontally with the bottom of the quilt to the left. The finished quilting will look like the sample here.
