The quilt above was featured in the pattern; the series began in Sept/Oct ’10 (No. 135). The featured color scheme is called Summer. Here’s a sneak peek of the finished quilt in not one, not two, not three, but four additional colorways! This design had so much potential that we couldn’t pick just one, so our readers get all four “extra” color schemes. If one of these sounds perfect for your next project, you can get a starter kit of fabrics for any of these versions.

How about classic blue and white?

    Each quilt evokes a different reaction from me based on the color. My favorite is still the original, especially the flying geese around the houses at the top.
