Solar Flares was designed by Quiltworx in 2015 as an addition to our collection of patterns that use the (48) pack of 2-1/2” strips that Quiltworx has created, involving pre-sorting and pre-packaging strips in six groups of 8, ranging from light to dark in color value. The design utilizes a block that is familiar to Quiltworx fans, originally used in the Raindrops pattern. The instructions have been adapted for a scrappy layout using 2-1/2” strips and a collection of (36) background fabrics (the pattern requires 1/4 Yard of each!). Foundation paper piecing, floating points, and Template Layout Sheets are featured in these instructions, as they have become design standards that our customers have come to expect when they work with one of our patterns.
