Golden Opportunity Color Option
Heart's Desire Color Option
Designer: Laura BoehnkeFabrics: Romatic Olde Charleston collection by Judie Rothermel for Marcus FabricsPut a classic twist on this modern pattern by using reproduction fabrics. Pinning carefully and stitching slowly, Laura completely machine-pieced Heart's Desire. She fussy-cut a stripe vine so it would continue uninterrupted to perfectly frame the lettering in the LOVE block.Get the digital issue here.
Spinwheels Color Option
Shifts of NatureFor her wall-hanging version, quilt tester Laura Boehnke chose deep, rich batiks in inviting earth tones. She used the subtle shifts in the brown batik setting pieces to provide an interesting framework, concentrating medium-brown setting squares in the center of the quilt, creating a frame of darker brown setting squares, and ending with setting and corner triangles in a third brown batik.Get the free quilt pattern here.
