Garden Paths Color Option
Starry Irish Chain
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke used a mottled dark brown background in both the Irish Chain and star blocks, causing them to bled rather than stand out as separate unites. “A consistent background allows the stars and Irish Chain ‘paths’ to really pop,” she says. The retro-inspired prints are from the Penny Lane collection from Hoffman California Fabrics.
