Bow Tie Leader/Ender Update

In my previous update, I shared that I was sewing the little bow tie blocks into large 8 x 8 blocks.

I have now sewn all but six little bow ties into a flimsy.

When I was finished, and hung the flimsy up to take a photograph, I realized that I had miscalculated.Β  This monster is approximately 75″ x 100″.

What was I thinking????

But the six leftover blocks make a cute 9.5″ orphan block!

  1. That is a BIG quilt! I call those events “a burst of enthusiasm.” They just happen sometimes.

  2. Hmmm, maybe subtitle it: Bow Ties – A little wine & crackers to go with your Cheddar?
    Fun!

  3. That is a very LONG quilt! You could add some more width and make it a king size, or maybe not,πŸ˜„.

    • It would be a smart move, Kathy, and I do indeed have the cheddar and the scraps to make more blocks. I don’t feel like making more, so maybe I shall let this thing marinate until such a time that I want to face it again. Ha, ha! 😁

  4. You could make it into two quilts. With borders you could get two twin size quilts out of it. Most charities take that size. One for you, one for giving.
