Stunning BOM from Wing and a Prayer

I know the fabric and patterns won’t be available until the end of the year but you are seeing the fabric now and I wanted to make sure you saw how beautiful this quilt is! Why not show it to customers and offer it as a pre-sale so you know how much fabric to order?

Tonga Windsong is a 20-piece batik treat collection featuring the best of nature’s colors. The Windsong BOTM uses 13 specially chosen fabrics that represent the colors of the seasons. Traditional piecing techniques are used in making this 108” square quilt. The quilt blocks were created and colored to represent the warm and cool tones of nature, giving customers the chance to see how a simple change in color can affect the block’s appearance. This twelve-month program offers a variety of block and fabric combinations.

You can see the fabrics used in the background of the shop kit. These fabrics are listed as companions on the Checker website under the pattern or shop kit. They are stunning! Shop kits are limited to one per store. Verification of Windsong Fabric purchase may be required.

I love Fall colors and this line will sell itself but with the addition of the pattern? This is a no-brainer! The Shop Kit is due to arrive at the end of October so you have a couple of months to make the sample before the patterns and fabric arrive.
