Quilting in a Modern Style - Modern Curves (Anita Shakleford)

Sometimes I find a new digital quilting pattern which becomes flavour of the month here at  Fabadashery Long Arm quilting.  This time around it is 'Modern Curves' by Anita Shackelford.

There are plenty of patterns out there with flowers, feathers and fancy swirls, but like this simple square quilt, sometimes a quilt top needs to be quilted, but doesn't necessarily need an all over pattern which is going to alter it character significantly.  The simple undulating lines of 'Modern Curves' seems to achieve this.

After completing the Allietare Mystery quilt, I decided to  use the scrap leftovers to make a small green tumbler quilt.  It was quick to come together and once on the APQS quilting frame quick to quilt. 
It didn't really have a planned destination, but is just so happens that is co-ordinates nicely with this IKEA stool, so I think it has found a home.
