Flying Free Color Option
Patriotic Folk Art Quilt
For a quick take on Flying Free, quilt tester Laura Boehnke used a fusible-appliqué technique to make a one-block wall hanging. She left off the original’s pieced outer border and decreased the width of the inner border (cut 2-1/2" wide) to better match her smaller quilt’s proportions. Fabrics from the Canterbury collection by Country Essentials for Connecting Threads enhance the folk art style.
