    Sunny yellows and bright blues star in quilt tester Laura Boehnke’s three-block version of Crossed Paths. Side sashing strips in a print different from the center sashing strips offer the look of an inner border. The big daisy print in the 4"-wide outer edges ties all the colors together.

  • Fanciful Flowers Color Option

    Quilt tester: Laura Boehnke

    Fabrics: Irresistible Iris collection by Ann Lauer for Benartex


    Instead of appliquéing blooms in a twirling arrangement like in Fanciful Flowers, quilt tester Laura Boehnke appliquéd individual flowers onto foundation rectangles, then framed each appliquéd rectangle with a border. Black sashing strips highlight the punchy floral fabrics. A stripe border adds interest.
