I’m taking part in the bowtie swap being hosted by Barb over at Fun with Barb. I love bowtie quilts! My very first hand pieced quilt was a bow tie quilt. The blocks for Barb’s swap are machine pieced.
Here is a quilt I finished a number of years ago with hand pieced blocks. I think these finished at 4 inches.
The quilting was done on my 1955 Singer 201.
My blocks for the swap are all finished now but won’t be mailed for a bit. They aren’t due until October but I always like to do them right away so I can forget about them and then it is like Christmas when they come!
By the way, as we are traveling over the next week, I won’t be able to respond to comments easily. I do appreciate each and every one and if there are questions, I will try to reply in the comments rather than through e-mail. We’ll see how that works.
