Color Options from American Patchwork & Quilting October 2012
We know you love the quilt projects that appear in American Patchwork & Quilting® magazine. We took inspiration from projects in the magazine and created Web-exclusive versions, complete with full instructions as well as staff color options.
Back on Track Color Option
Designer Carrie Nelson so enjoyed making Back on Track that she created a second version with a few differences. In the original quilt, Carrie used a single background to unify the scrappy blocks. Because the second color palette was a bit more controlled, she opted to make the background and border scrappy instead. Carrie also added pink sashing squares and limited the sashing strips to browns and tans.
After making blocks for the original quilt, Carrie decided she wanted the Xs to “float” inside the blocks so she gave each block a separate border of the background fabric.
