What materials did you use? The black and white fabrics are Kona. The prints are madras plaid, and another cotton print I've had for ages.

What are you most proud of? I had fun with the channel quilting. I haven't quilted anything big, and I'm a bit anxious about quilting the BOM quilt, when it's time.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'd like to find a pattern that has a rectangle/square for the center piece. I think it would look better. BTW I found several bow tie tutorials online. Google is my friend.

What size is this? Looks great

tomib.. It was pretty big... I'm guessing around 12" square finished. You could put a mug on each corner. My daughter's "Mug Rug to the Stars" is the same size, and is posted in my projects with a mug ON the mug rug.

Thanks Pieceful1! I'm working on a idea for a follow-up (incorporating the bow-tie & the wild plaids he is so found of wearing! lol) He calls them his "Party/Holiday Plaids" and is getting the whole family into this trend!
