Monday, Dec. 26th..."and I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight, Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night". And so it becomes the "day after". Hope you all had a wonderful celebration of your holiday....I did..*VBS* Today I'm offering you a very scrappy bow tie snuggle quilt made for DD#2. She doesn't get a lot of blog time, she is one of (mostly) missing in action kind of daughers. I love her dearly, but as with anything you love, you set it free, and if comes back to you...well, you know the rest. Before I was as "addicted to Quiltville" as I now am, I had two basis quilts I made from my overflowing scrap bins. I had one or the other in progress all the time. I did bow ties and/or variation of half square triangles. Lots of layouts possible from that one. These bowties are 6.5" blocks. When I worked with the hst's they were from 4.5" triangle. This bowtie was made for Christmas about 3 years ago. Machine pieced, utility quited with a flannel backing. Posted by Picasa

Beatiful quilt. And you sound like a nice mom. If I wasn't all growed up I'd ask you to adopt me. ;)

Our Dear Son called first thing yesterday and that felt nice. He had a great day planned for himself and that made me happy.

I have to go back and look at your quilt pic some more. I hope you have a great day.

I like the cheerful energy the color in this quilt produces. Hope you had a blessed Christmas time. Oh and I want to tell you that you erased any guilt building up inside my thoughts and I didn't bake a single thing for the holidays and they are going by just as special as if I had slaved over the oven. Thanks for that = ). It was a very good 'gift'. Sending a hug your way!

love that bow tie. it's on my wannabe list for one of these days. probably in some of the sweet florals I got from Mama's stash that just really aren't my style but I think would look nice done as bow ties. And I'll put it aside for the next time I need a baby girl quilt.

OH I love bowties! I have visions in my head of doing them out of crumb blocks....are yours with the inset seams, or the triangle across the corner of the background square variety??

Love it! It is a very Finn quilt, but I guess you already knew that!
