Color Options from Quilts and More™ Winter 2011

We know you love the quilt projects that appear in Quilts and More magazine. We took inspiration from projects in the magazine and created Web-exclusive versions, complete with full instructions.

Urban Attitude Color Option


Two-Block Citrus Quilt

Assorted citrus-look prints from the Sorbet Garden collection by Jill Finley of Jillily Studio for Henry Glass Fabrics sparked quilt tester Mary Pepper's imagination when assembling this version of Urban Attitude. She eliminated the 6-1/2x5-1/2" rectangles and used setting rectangles grouped by color families to create strong diagonal lines across the quilt top.

Wintergreen Color Option


Floral and Paisley Chain Quilt

To give Wintergreen a fresh look, quilt tester Judy Sams Sohn changed the colors to blue, cream, and gold prints and made all two-color blocks. By using similar cream prints in each block, a lattice design emerges on the quilt top. Fabrics are from the Paisley Denim collection by Skipping Stones Studio for Clothworks.
