I have been making mini bow ties for a swap...
I have 36 made for the swap. but I don't think I will stop there. they are so fun to make. the pattern is on Bonnie Hunter quiltville site. it's called Cheddar Mini Bow Ties. Now if you are so inclined to swap these lovely blocks, go over to Quilting Bee. it's a yahoo group. it's a new group, but we have been doing fun things. there is still time to join in if you would like..... You know you want to!
Last year, Vicki and made this quilt.
It's called in Grannies dream. I haven't been able to find it online. So I think the pattern is no longer available. We used a green ombre fabric. so the dark green is top and bottom, with the lightest green in the middle. the quilt looks like it glows. I love it!!
I stepped out of my box this time. once I loaded it, I worked from the front of the machine. A first for me! I quilted horizontal lines. I tried to put 3 rows in each section. I still have to put the binding on, so I haven't included the yardage as finished yet. I really love how it turned out.
I have also been working on Bonnie Hunters Grand Illusion Mystery. I have all the pieces done. just need to start putting them together. My friend Maggie has her top done!
Isn't it beautiful? I can't wait to get to this point!
