Fly Away Home Color Option
Flying Geese Wall Hanging
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke dialed down the contrast in the green rows of her table runner version of Fly Away Home. Subtle Flying Geese units in deep reds, pine-tree greens, and neutrals bring to mind a verdant forest floor. While maintaining the scrappy feel of the original quilt, Laura controlled it by using one background fabric for each vertical row of Flying Geese. Fabrics are from the Cambridge Collection and Sturbridge Village Greens, both by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.
