  • Message from Bound To Be Quilting: The Solare BOM pattern has multiple blocks that are a little more challenging, but wouldn’t be considered difficult. We think this quilt will appeal to “intermediate” quilters. For the coloration of this quilt, we strove for an earth and sky look using browns, oranges and greens that reflect nature, with the blues and golds of the heavens; a combination that should be pleasing to both men and women.

  • Bonus Project - Use your leftover fabric to make this bonus Companion Block as a great way to accessorize your room to match your new quilt. Use it as a throw pillow or turn it into a wall hanging. Complete instructions for this project are included in the pattern. Finished size is 24” x 24”.
  • Banyan Batik's Exclusive Tutorials: A QR code allowing access to exclusive monthly tutorials will be included on the back cover of the BOM pattern.  A tutorial will also be included for the bonus ‘Companion Block’ project.
