Color Options from Quilts and More Winter 2010
Fast Flowers Twin-Bed Quilt
Web-Exclusive Bonus Projects
Fussy-cut printed fabric panels to make a fast and easy twin-bed quilt. Use a combination of prints-florals, rickrack, dots, and tone-on-tones-to add an extra splash of style. Fabrics are from the Fun Flowers I and II collections by Holly Holderman for LakeHouse Dry Goods.
Shape a straightforward throw from a roundup of rectangles and strips.
Rectangle Reverie Color Option
Sashing and Rectangles Quilt
For a calming version of Rectangle Reverie, choose a color palette that soothes the soul. Quilt tester Kathleen Williams used a dozen prints in aqua, lime, and cocoa from the Spa collection by Rosemarie Lavin for Windham Fabrics tied together with aqua tone-on-tone sashing and binding.
In the Stacks
Here's a novel idea! Pieced blocks appear to be books and sashing looks like shelves on this noteworthy throw that resembles a library of treasure tomes.
In the Stacks Color Option
Strips and Stacks Quilt
Give In the Stacks feminine flair with Gudrun Erla's Halo collection for Red Rooster. Quilt tester Jan Ragaller chose a bold floral as the theme-setter for this throw and used assorted companion prints for the volumes on the shelves.
Don't be fooled-these handy mini purses come together in a jiffy! No-fail zipper tips make assembly super easy.
In Cahoots Color Option
Rickrack Mini Purse
If owls aren't your style, delete the beak and button eyes and add a strip of jumbo rickrack to trim your mini purse. Sew rickrack (or other embellishment) to bag front along its wavy edges with matching thread.
Too Hot to Handle
Spice up someone's kitchen by gifting festive pot holders.
Too Hot to Handle Color Option
Easy Sew Pot Holder and Oven Mitt
Like a lively look? Give the pot holder and oven mitt splashes of color. Designer Joyce Cronkhite used the Funky Kitchen collection by Barb Tourtillotte for Clothworks for these kitchen accessories-an oven mitt and pot holders with year-round appeal.
Craft an abstract masterpiece by joining precut strips in a row-by-row quilt.
Line Art Color Option
Skinny Strips Quilt
A simple switch of color palettes gives an easy-to-sew quilt a new look. Here a variety of snappy blue prints, some with a dash of red, from the Clermont Farms from Minick and Simpson for Moda Fabrics are combined with chalk-white fabric strips to make a classic throw.
