Forest Floor Batik BOM
Finished Size: 106" x 106"
The 2017 Tonga Forest Floor collection is a palette of light to dark autumn hues. The Forest Floor quilt is a twist on tradition featuring twelve, 12" blocks for monthly handout nestled in a log cabin setting. Both novice and skilled quilters will enjoy piecing this luscious Forest Floor quilt. The large stamped batik leaves let the fabric do the work for you enhancing the Forest Floor theme. An easy pieced border frames the quilt interior showing off the beautiful blend of all the colors replacing a standard border.
Pillow and runner bonus projects using the seven large leaves left over from your BOM project. You can order the FQ kits to go with your left over leaves from the BOM quilt to make these two gorgeous pillows and table runner!

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!
