Little Bow Tie Love

I've been working on bow ties for months... I do 25 a month and put them in my box ...well, 

Sunday after I finished my 25 I decided to make a block...it was love at first sight...


I can't wait to sew more together. 

I don't have a plan right now for how big it's going to be...as long as I'm having fun I'll keep making little (2" finished) bow ties...Hope you are doing something that brings you enjoyment!

Very nice, Carol. Bow Ties are always a great way to use up scraps, too.

So great! A bow-tie quilt is in my future too :) I found a pattern for hand pieced ties and I'm pretty excited to get started - unfortunately, I have a few projects to finish up first!

So fun to see your bow-tie quilt coming along! I just finished the top to one I've been making. It's a lovely block to make--so classic.:)

How many months have you been doing this??? Pretty! I'm making 1.5" p patch units, but, I don't have very many yet.

Great bow ties! Those points are spot on which makes a perfect block. The fabrics go well together...can't wait to see what you do with them.

2" is quite small...which makes them even more amazing. I'm not sure I could get something that tiny to match up so nicely.

Those are sweet little blocks all tied together! I have a bow quilt to finish by fall. My blocks will be a little bigger though so not as cute. I do love a good bow tie though.
