I don't consider myself a modern quilter, but I really like that first quilt you showed. Your fabric is also gorgeous! I love the gradation of it.

Love purple - especially the way you have displayed it here in all of it's rich manifestations. Wish you well with your purple quilt manifestation.

Do you know where I could find the Gordian Knot pattern. I see you have pictures posted in 2008 of a class to make this quilt.
