Quilt Tops for Giveaway!

coveroptimized2 Quilt Tops for Giveaway!Our March/April issue features some beautiful color options, and today we’re hosting a giveaway for three of them. A new quilt top could be on its way to you shortly.

In case you’re not familiar with the idea of color options, for many patterns we create a second quilt top using completely different fabrics and colors. We hope this invites you to imagine the possibilities for that pattern—to consider how it would look if you chose a different color recipe. We show the color option in print, near the end of the pattern.

Here are some examples. The original quilt Around the Town is shown below.
