February Finish

The Bowtie Baby Quilt is finished! This little quilt was made as a baby shower gift for a co-worker. This was also my February project for A Lovely Year of Finishes. The idea for this quilt started with the floral border fabric as my color palette inspiration. I had such a great time pulling out fabrics and making bowtie blocks. I ended up with lots more blocks than this quilt used, so another bowtie quilt will be coming before too long.


Bowtie Baby Quilt
Finished size 36" x 46"

The backing was pieced together from some flannel scraps. So soft and cuddly! 





I am linking up with the February finishes party at A Lovely Year of Finishes. You can check out how everyone else did at reaching their goal for the month. I am also linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday at My Quilt Infatuation, Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, and to Let's Make Baby Quilts! at Michelle's Romantic Tangle.
