Bow Ties

I was able to complete 2 small finishes this week.
Two little quilts.
They are what I like to call "table mats".


I used the SAME set of leftover bow tie blocks to make both of these.

Isn't it AMAZING how different they turned out??

Hand quilting these little quilts
makes them EXTRA special.

I'm making about 10-12
 little table mats for an auction in the spring.
Hoping to get a nice variety of quilts
using UP the myriad of scraps that FILL my bins!
So far I have 4 made with one needing to be quilted!

Hope they find HAPPY HOMES!

I'm WAY ahead of schedule.
but knowing me..
I'll still need a few more by the time the deadline arrives.
We all work GREAT under pressure, right??
;)

(The bow ties are all 4 1/2" square.
The borders I added are 2" wide.
Both of these little quilts measure almost 20"x 20")

  5. These are precious. Great idea to have something small for those who go looking to have fun but not overspend. Love the quilting in the dark thread!

  6. These are really cute. I have to admire someone who hand quilts. I do NOT have the patience. :)
