I apologize for the poor picture quality. This is what happens when you don't get a picture before the quilt leaves your house. Several of you commented about the yellow background in my RR crossing top(below). I often use yellow as a background..you just saw it in the Sawtooth Star for baby Grant. Sandra showed a couple of her bowtie quilts and it got me thinking. I love the bowtie pattern...and make it frequently. With this baby quilt(for baby Dominic) my DD decided to give the quilt to the GRANDMA instead of the mom. It lives at Grandma's house..*VBS* One of the things you see in this bowtie, is that I add a 1.5" strip acaross the top of the first bowtie, and across the bottom of the second ooe, etc. It gives them a bit of a "dancing" look...staggered. Also makes the quilt just a tat bigger..*G* Since we didn't know what the baby would be, I just went with spring colors and the yellow(with baby chicks) background.
