Finish It Up Friday ~ Bow Tie

And it’s done!

And I’m thrilled with how it turned out!

E1 decided to help me show it off. 😊

Crosshatching is not the easiest on a longarm, but I love how it turned out.

The rest of these photos show how it looked after washing.

The backing and binding came from some vintags pieces from my Great Aunt Celia’s stash. She passed away three years ago at 99.

I love how this turned out, the crosshatch quilting isn’t that fun to do, but the texture is amazing and it was just right for this little quilt.

Have a great day!

    It’s stunning! In my opinion a simple block combined with a simple quilting pattern always makes the most beautiful quilt. Great work! I would have taken one look at those misshapen blocks you received and thought, “No Way!”

    Bow tie quilt is just toooo cute. I wasn’t sure I liked the blue for the solid blocks but I should have remembered you know how to pick colors.

    Beyond impressed with the work you did to make this sweet little quilt come to life. The maker of the original bowtie blocks would be tickled with your efforts.

    What a sweet quilt. It looks vintage and warm and snuggly. The crosshatch quilting was the perfect choice.
