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.
Hometown Parade Color Option
Take out the stars and stripes and narrow the neighborhood to nine blocks to make this almost-quare throw.
Quilt tester Laura Boehnke chose prints in familiar deep, warm tones from Jo’s Jamestown collection by Jo Morton for Andover Fabrics.
“I wanted to come up with a hearthside look that was a bit more subdued,” she says, “so I framed the quilt with a brown outer border, used darker green plaids to dim the lights in the windows, and chose strips with less contrast for the Log Cabin blocks.”
