Vintage Bow Ties

I’ll be doing some traveling next month, so I’ve been on the lookout for a hand project to take. Once again, I pulled out these vintage bow tie blocks.

Some are sewn into strips already. There is a total of 18 blocks.

I remembered that I had this template set and I’m thinking about using it to cut these apart and make smaller blocks.

It would allow me to remove damaged bits and have consistent sized blocks to sew together into a doll quilt top.

That center square is a bit of a tight fit. I would probably dig through my vintage scraps to make a few more blocks as well.

Have a great day!
