Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting December 2010
Happy Holidays Color Options
Assistant editor Jody Sanders and quilt tester Laura Boehnke demonstrate how Happy Holidays can take on two different looks.
Autumn Prairie Points Table Topper
Laura used the Harvest Reflections collection from Benartex for a decidedly autumn-inspired wall hanging (left) fit for a nature lover. The prairie points mimic the fern fronds in the predominant print.
Reproduction-Print Table Topper
Jody gathered fabrics from her stash of reproduction prints and skipped the prairie points and holly appliqués to create a scrappy quilt (right) with a multicolor palette that allows for year-round display.
