Mid Winter Blues BOM - Island Batik Version - Includes Backing!

Mid Winter Blues - Island Batik Version

Program Starts January, 2022

We are very excited to present the Mid Winter Blues program at Fabric Essentials. Like all our Flexible BOM programs, we will cut complete kits in advance, so you can take as many blocks as you want at one time. Our programs also include a Boo-Boo Bundle of extra fabrics ("just in case") and our famous cutting diagrams so you can SEE how you are supposed to cut the fabric! Coordinating backing is included with this program.

Finished Size: 103" x 103"

We only use the original Island Batiks Constellation collection. No substitutions!

Fabric Essentials Cutting Diagrams & Boo-Boo Bundle:

Have you ever been working on a quilt and made a cutting mistake and then discovered that you don't have enough fabric to fix it? In order to help with these two common problems, we have developed exclusive cutting diagrams to minimize cutting errors and we also include a Boo-Boo bundle of extra fabric as a backup with most projects. We order extra fabric and can also cut 1/4 yard and 1/2 yard bundles if you need more.

Each block you receive will contain a visual guide showing the best way to cut your pieces from the fabric in the kit. Many times you must also use this same fabric in a future block. Without a visual guide you must keep your fingers crossed that you haven't cut your fabric in such a way to be short down the road. 

Even if you do get distracted and make an error, your Boo-Boo bundle will save the day (or the night)! You can keep on going no matter what. This is truly "piece of mind" (pun intended).

P.S. Your Boo-Boo bundle can also be used to make decorative pillows, table runners and whatever else you might dream up to go with your beautiful quilt!
