Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting® December 2008
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke creates a color option of at least four blocks for every quilt in American Patchwork & Quilting® magazine. See her variations from this issue.
Christmas Candy Color Option
Garden Party Table Runner
Christmas Candy in the colors of chocolate and lollipops becomes a table runner for quilt tester Laura Boehnke. Most fabrics are from Anna Maria Horner’s Garden Party collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics.
Instead of fussy cutting a floral, Laura combined bright colors with brown for her triangle units. She paid careful attention to color placement when insetting those units into triangle-squares. Two 1/2"-wide finished borders and one 2-1/2"-wide finished border complete the 19-1/2x43-1/2" table runner.
