Color Coded Color Option
Quilt tester: Monique Jacobs
Fabrics: Chalk and Charcoal collection by Jennifer Sampou for Robert Kaufman Fabrics

Bits of the Past Color Option
Positively Patriotic Color Option
Quilt tester: Colleen Tauke
Fabrics: Lollipop Garden collection by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics
Quilt tester Colleen Tauke's choice of warm colors transformed the mood of Positively Patriotic. Kimberly Sandberg of Handi Quilter machine-quilted a fluid design that adds a sense of motion to the wall hanging.
Tea Party Color Option
Heartspun Friendship Color Option
Quilt tester: Sharon McConnell
Fabrics: a variety of batik collections by Jacqueline de Jonge for Anthology Fabrics
Batiks create a light and airy feel in this table topper by quilt tester Sharon McConnell. Because Sharon used beige batiks that are similar in contrast for the background, the stars appear to float in the open space.
Cottage Style Color Option
Quilt tester: Diane Tomlinson
Fabrics: Poppy Love collection by Northcott
Quilt tester Diane Tomlinson featured poppies, the symbol of remembrance, in a charming table topper that is just right for summer picnics. To showcase the flowers, she fussy-cut the smallest poppy print for the corners of the Nine-Patch units.
