Bow Tie Quilt on The Clothes Line

On the Clothes Line

Bow Tie Quilt on The Clothes Line 
We have moved a number of times (10) the first move I made with Husband was to Burlington, Iowa. A beautiful town in the south-eastern corner of the state on the Mississippi River. Husband worked around the clock and I found quilts. This is one of the first one's I purchased.

At the auction I could only see the back of the quilt. Someone over time had sewn the good sides together. Maybe to make it thicker or stronger??

It was a huge leap of faith and $10.  I sat for an evening with a seam ripper and removed all the threads and I love this quilt. I have it on a table in my sewing room, it's a bit of a catch all table, but I love seeing it.

Who ever pieced this together took time of match the fabric on both ends of the bow tie. As you can see, in above photo, they did this with all of them.

Back of a Hand Quilted Quilt 
I had questions about last weeks quilt and the hand quilting. I just did a stipple quilting line, with very tiny stitches.  This is around each heart.

June Quilt Pattern Block of the Month
This is my 3" block. Using scraps is one of my favorite things to do. I've been told over the past couple of months that my colors are a bit off ??  I just bring everything together with the sashing and/or border. Have fun with your quilts, all the matching, and matching is nuts, the best quilts as the ones with a pop or surprise in color. How many times do you hear, "I'd never try that, but it really works," Try it, IT's FUN !

And the 6" block. Have to love Pink flowers. My favorite.
