My bow tie quilt made from "The Ladies" quilt block exchange. Five of us each made blocks for each other and then we all put our quilts together. We all picked our background colors (mine was white on white) and told what fabrics we wanted. I wanted mine to be scrappy with a vintage layout and look and quilted it with a very simple design. I didn't like the flapping 3-D centers so I quilted the edges with a tiny zip zag to hold them down. I found a scrap of light blue fabric with tiny bows which I added to the bow tie corners which gives the appearance of snowball blocks. This helped break up the white center. The pattern is the very easy 10 minute block. The back is nice and warm flannel. Now I have my own quilt to snuggle up with. I have always made quilts for others so this is my first quilt for myself....woo hoo!! It is yet to be named, but I am thinking "Tie One On" is appropriate!
The quilts designed by the other ladies in our group are fabulous. Some used Christmas fabrics and some chose different layouts. They turned out beautiful and everyone was so creative!
