These silly bowtie blocks have been hanging out on the wall for months now.  I looked everywhere for the same gold background fabric to make setting triangles, but had no luck at all.  Kathy suggested that I make triangles of all of the various colors, which sounded like a great suggestion.  That meant digging through my humble little stash trying to find all of the colors of the rainbow, which is what led to the delay.  Everything is a mess now, and I have made a lot of triangle shaped scraps, but I think the top is ready to sew together,  Have I mentioned lately how awesome summer vacation is?

Perfect choice!!! I really love the look of the colors in the setting triangles rather than the gold. Great quilt!!!

Cathy's suggestion was obviously a good one!

Wow! Beautiful layout! The muticolored setting triangles work really well. Isn't it amazing how necessity can really force you to adopt a more interesting setting?
