My Bow Tie quilt is bound!

Yes, I have a flurry of finishes today. It feels SO good and I know now that I’m going to be able to accomplish my goals for the end of the year.

Block size is 6 inches finished and I used my GO dies for this one. It went together very easily and I can’t wait to make an adult size scrappy version with the dies.

I’ve already got the binding on the 3rd quilt ready to hand stitch tonight and I’ve got one more to quilt and bind which is exciting because I promised myself if I worked my way through my list I would allow myself to play in my strings for the rest of the year. I’m planning another mini stay at home retreat for a few days leading to and including New Year’s Day and I want to be making string blocks!


  1. I love, love, love this little “Bow Tie” & I, too, can’t wait to see your adult version. Any idea what color(s) you’re going to do it in? I hope it goes together as smoothly for you as this little gem did! Another retreat?!!? Good for you! If I know anything about you, that means this time next week there’ll be a hundred new gorgeous quilts & afghans & beanies in the world! You go, girl!

  2. Such a cute quilt! I am amazed at how much you accomplish. I struggle just to get time in my sewing room these days. I always have big plans though. I guess that’s a start. Have fun with the string quilts. I would love to make one of those too.

  3. Mary how did you make your bowtie quilt. did you use a pattern or go AccuQuilt dies? I am going to make a bowtie and am looking for a way to do this with scrappy fabrics. Thanks.
