Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting June 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.
Flower Patch Color Option
Double Star blocks resemble pinwheels as they spin across a vivid wall quilt, which simply pulls out the center section of “Flower Patch” to stand on its own.
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke chose bold prints from the Gardenia collection by Linda Lum DeBono for Henry Glass & Co. and Marble Mania mottled solids by Patrick Lose for Timeless Treasures.
“I like the contrast of the stripes and dots fencing in the curvy appliquéd flower while the pinwheels stand guard,” Laura says. “It makes its own fanciful little garden.”
