This quilt features Blue Coal borders, a Turquoise Tide Piping, and Purple Ice Binding. Your program includes 6 Yards coordinating Cream Dots 60" backing or 9 1/2 yards coordinating solid backing. The dots are unusual, and will provide a completely different look on the back side of the quilt! It may be hard to decide! Many people use the fabrics from their Boo-Boo Bundle to create a horizontal or vertical strip of fabrics across the back. Other people make a row of blocks, or scattered blocks across the back. There's no limit to the possibilities!
Striped Backing Option
For this option, you pick three solid colors you like. We cut 9 1/2 Yds. Three pieces each 3 Yds 6in
The finished quilt is 105" x 105". Your backing needs to be at least 114" x 114". After removing the selvages, you will have approximately 129inĚ width of fabric to work with. Cut or tear various sizes of strips Length of Fabric (LOF). Sew strips together. You need to end up with around 114inĚ x 114inĚ to have enough for the longarm quilter. This gives you 15in for seams, so you could have up to 30 different vertical strips if you wish. Here's an example of three colors that work well together.
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 Fat 8ths 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!

Optional Piping Kit:
The pattern recommends using Piping with the binding. The Groovin' Piping Tool helps trim a small piping's seam allowance with an accurate 1/4in or 1/2in seam allowance very quickly. The tool is 11.5in in length and is designed to work with 28, 45, or 60mm rotary cutters. Detailed 16 page booklet teaches quilters to make and apply perfect piping.
Optional Piping Kit:
* Groovin' Piping Tool
* Piping Kit $ 19.99
Note: 12 yards of piping cord are included with your BOM program.
Flexibility with Fabric Essentials BOM Programs!
When we receive your order, we will call you to discuss how you would like the program to work for you. We cut blocks ahead, so you can work ahead! You are not limited to only one block per month!
We encourage you to combine your shipments to save on shipping and handling. We can generally send two or three blocks for the same price as one block, and you save! This is why we offer flexible BOM programs and complete kits. For this program, we recommend two blocks per shipment as the pattern is based upon 6 Installments of 2 blocks each.
You can choose how many blocks to get and how often to get them! Many people buy 2 blocks every month or every two months. Others do 6 months at a time and then call us when they are ready for more. This is YOUR program. We will work with you to tailor it to your life and your budget.
Shipping & Handling
Shipping and handling is not included in the above monthly program costs, and will vary depending on which month, and how much fabric is being sent. In all cases, we try to send things the most economical way possible. We encourage you to take two blocks per shipment, as this will save you quite a bit.
