Design Wall Monday November 14, 2011

I've been working on these cheddar bow-ties as leaders and enders for a while now.  The stack seemed to be getting pretty big so I thought I'd throw them up on the wall and see how far they would go.  Seems like there are enough so far for a lap sized quilt.  Maybe I'll keep going until I get enough for twin sized so that this one can go in the donation pile.  Mom called today and asked if I could get some more quilts ready for her Sunday school class to give away for Christmas.  I brought her 9 quilts last time we went up, but she says they are doing Christmas presents for 12 families this year.  They got hit by a bad tornado not long ago and there are a lot of families in need.  I'm sure there must be something else in the stack that will work.

Oh wow! One day (when I'm a grown up quilter) I want to have some tops ready to roll out - just like that! I'm so glad I found your blog, Angela; you continually inspire me.

These blocks are great! It's always easier to finish a project when you have a good home in mind for it.

I love bowties. They are one of my favorite traditional blocks to make.

Bow tie blocks are such a simple block to make but look so good. I'm slowly building up a stock of lap sized donation quilts, mostly from this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

Your blocks look great. Whoever receives the finished quilt will be sure to love it!
