Last night I cut up some more scraps into 2.5" squares to make the Bow Tie blocks. I'm hand piecing them as a change from sitting at the machine and they go together quickly with 6 being pieced last evening.
These are the total number of Bow Tie blocks made so far and as I'm tidying the multitude of scraps I have here I'm also putting aside more to make more of these blocks. I'm thinking of making a baby quilt in pink from these blocks and maybe a multi-coloured one as well.
Today I stitched the blocks together for this quilt made from the 2.5" squares and 4.5" half square triangles.I still have 3 or 4 more rows to make before it's finished and I think I'll add borders as well. Tomorrow, I'll sort more of my scraps but I am making progress and will also start cutting up some of my older fabric to add to the bins of squares. I find I always run out of light coloured fabrics so I plan to cut some of my light coloured FQs to add more variety to the scrap bins.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving comments.
