Every workday morning, if I'm lucky, I have email conversation with my pal, Karen. This past week, it seems in the first email of every day, she asks "Did you finish your bow tie quilt?" and so now tomorrow, I can say "Yes! Yes, Karen, I DID finish my bow tie quilt!"
Quite happy with it! Measures 63 x 72 and no border! It's no secret that adding borders to a quilt is probably quite low on my list. And so when Karen says, "I don't think you should add a border. I think quilts look older without borders." Well...as if I would argue! So no borders!
Can you see the subtle shift between the two different Moda Bella Solids reds that I used? Here's a pic where you can probably detect the difference.
The bulk of the blocks were pieced using Moda's Country Red, and the few sparklers mixed in are made from Moda's Christmas Red. I think they play well!
In other news, if you follow me on Instagram (kwiltykim) or Facebook, then you know I was stuck in a two-day insurance seminar earlier this week! But all was not lost...while sitting in class, during a break I'm sure ;o), I plotted the next quilt!
Yep...broken dishes in my future!
Tonight I readied the fabrics for pressing...
I'm thinking I may as well plan for this one to be a queen size. I think I'll go with 3" finished half-square triangle units! Hopefully this weekend I'll get these all pressed and will whip out my Easy Angle and start cutting!
Hope your week is treating you well!
