Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting® October 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.
Autumn Bliss Color Option
Autumn Appliqué Table Topper
The use of prints sets quilt tester Laura Boehnke’s version of Autumn Bliss apart from the original. “Don’t be afraid to choose a strong print or plaid as the appliqué foundation,” Laura says. Her appliqués, in the rich colors of the Farmhouse 2 collection by Buggy Barn for Henry Glass & Co., hold their own against a prominent gold-and-red homespun background. Laura machine-blanket-stitched around each fused appliqué with black thread for a folk art look.
