Bow tie quilts

I received a garbage bag full of hand pieced blocks. I have machine pieced the blocks together and have made 5 prayer quilts with them. Here is a sample.dsc01127I LOVE bow tie quilts. It was one of the first quilts I ever made, and I had no idea what I was getting into. My first one had “y” seams and was a real challenge to make, so it was only 24″ square. This one is constructed of hand-pieced blocks that were made by the same person who did the bat blocks, the roman bars and the hourglass blocks. custodia iphone 6 antiradiazioni The same fabrics are used in all of them. custodia cuffie iphone These blocks finish up at 3 1/2″ and are amazingly well pieced. custodia gucci iphone 6s Notice how the points match perfectly? dsc01108Look at the crazy back I put on this one.

    It’s funny that two bowties are facing the “wrong” direction, and one square seems to not even have a bow tie in it! Cute quilts! (LOVE the backing. ha ha! very silly!)

    Amber, I am so impressed!!! You really looked at the quilts. You are right about one blank. I was one bow tie short and decided to leave an empty space. And the ones that went wrong, I decided to leave them to make it more whimsical. Don’t you love it??
