Out of the Blue
Out of the Blue Color Option #1
Designer: Monique DillardFabrics: Hannah collection by Fabri-QuiltSwap the lights and darks for a pop-art version of Out of the Blue. Two primary motifs emerge depending on your viewpoint. Do you see dark four-petal flowers with a Four-Patch at the center? Or do the light four pointed stars comes to the forefort for you?Get the digital issue here.
Out of the Blue Color Option #2
Designer: Laura BoehnkeFabrics: Valencia collection by Chong-a Hwang for Timeless Treasures FabricsFlorals are perhaps the ultimate multicolor prints. A simple rule of thumb for combining other colors with a realistic floral print is this: mix in some leafy green. The hint of gold in the block centers frames the Four-Patch in each block.Get the digital issue here.

Regular Joe Color Option #1
Designer: Laura BoehnkeFabrics: Artisan Batiks: Grove collection by Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman FabricsAn all-batik Regular Joe echoes a vertical half of the original quilt. Though the rows are shorter, this quilt stays true to the shifting rows emerging from the pattern center, which makes the rows appear to be water rippling away from a shoreline.Get the digital issue here.
Regular Joe Color Option #2
Designer: Laura BoehnkeHow do you keep one-color quilts from being ho-hum? When pulling fabrics for a monochromatic quilt, don't forget to pull all the shades of that hue. Not only do the vertical rows look like stairsteps, but each fabric appears to stairste across the width of the quilt as well.Get the digital issue here.

Red, White u0026 Oooh Color Option #2
Designer: Jill MeadFabrics: Kimberly's Garden collection from Fresh Water Designs for E.E. SchenckA delightful white plus 1930s prints version might well be hiding something. If you focus your attention on the four white centers of what appear to be Square-in-a-Square blocks with 1930s print corners, it's easy to lose sight of the star formed in the four corners.u0026nbsp;Get the digital issue here.
