Plan the Quilt

Quilt tester Laura Boehnke kept the color palette controlled in this color option, but used multiple fabrics within each color (four olive greens, three navy blues, and five light print backgrounds) to add interest to the quilt. To get this look, you must use a design wall to carefully plan fabric placement within each color. Cutting instructions result in the matching sets of pieces from each fabric required to achieve the featured quilt's look. If you want the planned look of the original, lay out all pieces on a design wall before making any units. (Otherwise, use assorted print pieces for all placements, resulting in a scrappy look.) Pick up pieces for one unit at a time, then return the finished unit to the design wall after it's completed.
