Design Wall Monday Bow Ties




The sign up for Barb's block swap is coming up soon, and the (self imposed) pressure is on to sew up the blocks from last year's swap. Deadlines are good motivators for me. Here are the bow ties from last year on the design wall.
Next will be a 1" or 2" muslin border followed by a border of mini bow ties.

Here are a few blocks that I have sewn so far and a stack of pieces cut and ready to sew. The block on the bottom left is one of the swap blocks from last year. 
And see those cute little blue scissors and matching tape measure that Julie sent to me for participating in the Log Cabin Lunatics link up? I am putting them to good use!

  9. Very fun bowtie quilt. It's amazing how motivating the next quilt along can be when you need to finish up the last project! Hope it all goes together well.
