4 methods of making HSTs and the effervescent Boho Beach picnic quilt

Clear every engagement you have for next week, we’re making the very effervescent Boho Beach picnic quilt!

Just in time for summer, Paul Leger designed this quilt using fabrics from the newest collection of Banyan Batiks Boho Beach. This quilt spells ‘picnic in sunny weather, not a cloud in the sky’! And the new collection is available now!
