Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting April 2012
We know you love the quilt projects that appear in American Patchwork & Quilting® magazine. We took inspiration from projects in the magazine and created Web-exclusive versions, complete with full instructions as well as staff color options.
Late Bloomers Color Option
Midnight Blooms Quilt
Appliquéd flowers in red and green Asian-inspired prints decorate quilt tester Laura Boehnke’s same-size version of Late Bloomers. To add subtle sparkle and mimic the metallic glints in the fabric, Laura straight-stitched with gold thread around the C and D appliqués after appliquéing them with a black zigzag stitch. Fabrics are from the Oriental Traditions collection from Robert Kaufman.
