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.
Sticks & Bricks Color Option
City Lights Quilt
By combining yellow and lime rectangles and dark sashing and borders, quilt tester Laura Boehnke makes Sticks & Bricks resemble a skyscraper with windows aglow at night. Also, the dark print frames make the rectangles pop instead of float. To get more variety from a single collection, cut stripes both lengthwise and crosswise for the rectangles. Fabrics are from the Kew Gardens collection by Laura Ashley for Quilting Treasures.
