Design Wall Monday 4/20/15

Yesterday I finished making the rest of my purple bowtie blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I also made some darker yellow/gold bowties because some of my paler yellows were blending in with the background fabrics too much. 

After I finished making blocks, I started playing with some possible layouts for my bowties. There are so many possibilities, but I liked these options. It will be even more fun to play with the blocks later this year when there are more colors included.

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times, where you can see all sorts of amazing quilting inspiration! I am also linking up with Monday Making over at Love Laugh Quilt.

  1. What a great idea for your RSC! I like the arrangements you're playing with. They remind me of Drunkard's Path layouts, without having to make curved seams.

  2. Layouts 2 and 3 get my vote. Coordinating the color location as well as the block orientation really makes a difference!

  3. These blocks are just lovely--nice work on blending those colors together--I love that layout of Lover's Knot......hugs, Julierose

  4. Those bow ties are so versatile! The chevron bow tie top is cheerful and will delight the child who receives it. I really like these purple and gold blocks, no matter how you set them!

  5. They are looking amazing. I have never seen them laid out that way.

  6. This is the great thing about the Bowtie block, the settings seem to be never ending!
    They look lovely.
