Type of item: Functional
Style: Funky, Whimsical
The black and white fabrics are Kona. The prints are madras plaid, and another cotton print I've had for ages.
What was your inspiration?
My son-in-law loves bow ties. I made this especially for him.
It finishes out about 12" square. It consists of two bow-tie blocks with heat resistant batting in the middle, and bound with black Kona non-bias tape. I think I cut the binding strips 2" wide, but I can't recall for sure.
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.
