Predictable and Vintage..or nearly so. This wall quilt hangs in my hallway. I handpieced the 4" bow ties back in the late 1980's. I managed to collect 25 of the Marcus Brothers reproduction fabrics of that era. This a charm quilt, with each fabric used just once. I used unbleached muslin and the set in seam method of piecing. It's hand quilted in ecru. I had not intended to have it on point, but when I laid out the bow ties I just wasn't happy with the straight rows of 5. I rather like them this way. After it was completed, I still wasn't completely happy with it, so I tossed it into a kettle with tea bags and changed the colors...some more than others..LOL. I rinsed it well and dried it, and then pressed it lightly. Oddly enough, the tea smell lingered for quite awhile. The clamshells in the big triangles don't follow across..they radiate out from the row of bow ties in each of the 4 directions.
