It may seem like there hasn't been much happening here in terms of the sewing and patchworking stuff, but rest assured that isn't the case!
In fact I have had my blinkers on to avoid distraction; with a pile of fabric in front of me, the rotary cutter in hand and quite some time productive time spent behind the sewing machine.
This quilt top is a traditional design featuring the Bow Tie quilt block. The fabrics are from Denyse Schmidt's Picnics and Fairgrounds collection (and a single Katie Jump Rope print), contrasted with Kona Cotton solid fabric in White and Canary yellow.
My "need" to make a Bow Tie Quilt was very much inspired by Angela's (Fussy Cut) Habitat Bow Tie Quilt as well as the Vanilla and Blooms Quilt made by Twin Fibers. Both are beautiful quilts with a variation in layout or use of fabric to create a very different overall effect.
It's been a good week. I hope you too have had a great sewing week!
