BABY BOWS

This past weekend offered lots of sewing time for me. I basically had the place to myself. Hubby was working, kids were away, and I didn't have to work.  This is the end result of the stack of bow tie blocks I showed you in the last post.


The three dimensional blocks went together fairly quickly.


The colours and prints in this are so soft and delicate. I have a box of this type of fabric and while sewing this I was considering digging it out of the closet  : )


I had this piece of border fabric which I thought was the finishing touch as it's one of the fabrics in the quilt. I will hand it back to the owner today, and she will take it from there.

Quilt Stats:
43 x 52
fabrics are a mix of 5" squares
you can 'google' 3D bow tie quilt and get the pattern

I think you should dig your fabrics out of the closet. I haven't seen a 3-D quilt like this before. It's so soft and lovely!

I love the 3d aspect!

Heather D. said...

Very sweet fabrics, and the 3-d aspect is very unique. I did a TON of sewing this week too, even with my husband and kids here, which isn't normally how it goes around here so I was pretty pleased.

This is so soft and pretty! I love the 3D look, too!

Lynne said...

This turned out so pretty! The bow centers really add to it. It seems both vintage and modern at the same time.

W-S Wanderings said...

Oh my, such a gorgeous quilt! All soft, delicate, interesting, and vintage-y. LOVE it.

I wish I had the skill and patience to sew a quilt.

Blessings...

This is also called a Ten Minute Block or a 5 Minute Block. You can finish the 3-D pieces by "rolling" them and stitching to create a cathedral window look.

I have two on my blog in low volumes also, back in Aug 2012.

Lovely quilt.
Did you figure out why the first one shrank so much? Curious, isn't it?

CitricSugar said...

Very cool effect!! And such sweet fabrics...
