Urban Amish Color Option
Holiday Double Nine-Patch Quilt
Instead of solids and mottled fabrics, quilt tester Laura Boehnke used an array of small-scale prints from the Holidays At Home collection by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics to create Double Nine-Patch blocks for a scrappy-looking Urban Amish throw quilt. By adding a novelty bird print in some of the blocks, she subtly re-created the asymmetrical look of the original. Laura cut a stripe on the diagonal to create an inner border with plenty of movement.
