Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting February 2011
Small Measures Color Option
Flying Four-Patch Wall Hanging
Instead of using small-scale prints for this quilt’s tiny blocks, select solids or tone-on-tones in a wide range of hues, such as those in the Bear Essentials collection by P&B Textiles. To keep the multicolor rows from becoming too busy, quilt tester Laura Boehnke used a single tone-on-tone fabric for the background in each Flying Geese row. She replaced the light 1x36-1/2” sashing strips surrounding the Four-Patch rows with dark brown strips that create separation by with less contrast.
