The Fig Leaf
At The Fig Leaf in Fort Collins, Colorado, Laura and Rob Shotwell pair two businesses—fabric and furniture— under one roof, offering quilters twice the fun.
Calm, Cool, and Collected Color Option
Gray is enjoying a resurgence in home decor color schemes. Why not incorporate it into your quilts as well? In quilt tester Laura Boehnke’s version of Calm, Cool, and Collected, graphic prints in the blocks pop off the solid gray setting pieces. Pumping up the contrast in the borders, Laura took a cue from the hints of yellow in her blocks for the first border, then added a striking solid black middle border. The bold print outer border ties the whole look together with a flourish. Fabrics are from the Groovin’ collection by Jane Spolar of Quilt Poetry for Northcott.
