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

Mid Winter Blues - Island Batik Version

Program Starts late February, 2022 (originally estimated to start in January, 2022, but the dates have changed).

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!



Choose a Complete Set of Kits or Flexible Block-of-the Month Program!
This project includes the pattern, a Boo-Boo bundle, and all fabrics for the top, including coordinating backing and binding.

After you order your reservation fee, we'll call you to find out whether you want the complete set of kits or a traditional block-of-the-month program.
We cut entire  kits in advance, which means we are very flexible in how you want your program to work. Choose 1, 2, 3,  blocks per month or even the entire kit! If you choose to take the complete set of kits, we'll pay the shipping to any US destination!

Please note that if you choose the Complete Kit option, you will receive the kit cut as a BOM project. We mention this because some stores just cut hunks of fabric. With Fabric Essentials, you will receive all the goodies you have come to expect with our programs - a Boo-Boo Bundle of extra fabric, exclusive cutting diagrams, backing and binding!
P.S. We just found out that many stores do not include binding in their BOM programs. It pays to ask questions so you know exactly what you are getting!

Note: We cut all kits in advance - this means that your fabrics will be from the same shipment. When you sign up for our BOM programs, we put all your kits in a bag with your name on it. We cut your backing in advance as well. You are guaranteed to get all your kits! Less risk for you and no worries!

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!
