Bowtie Baby Quilt

I had a Bowtie Baby Quilt weekend extravaganza! I finished making blocks on Saturday and played with a couple more layout possibilities (check out this post for other layout ideas.) On Sunday I joined the blocks together for the first baby quilt (I have enough blocks for at least one more.) In the evening I was able to add the border and now have a finished quilt top!

The border fabric provided the inspiration for this quilt's color palette. Next I need to find a fabric for the backing and figure out how to quilt this. Time is short--baby is due in one month!

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. Check it out for tons of amazing ideas and inspiration. I am also linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and Fabric Frenzy Friday at Fort Worth Fabric Studio.

  4. I love Bowties! I've been wondering why suddenly my old posts on Bowties are getting so many hits via Google searches. I'm guessing your beautiful blocks and layouts have something to do with that! Have fun quilting these!
