A few were made every month through this summer when I felt like there were enough to make a nice size cuddle quilt - 90 different 6.5 inch blocks.
I finally got this quilt top basted, quilted, bound, and finished this week! Hooray! Scrappy Bowties measures 55.5 x 62.
This quilt is such a perfect example of what I love about scrappy, colorful quilts. Anything goes!
The backing is a royal blue tiny floral print wide-back fabric that I got on sale from Connecting Threads earlier this year. It's the first time I've ever used a wide backing and it was so convenient! I had a lot of it left, so I decided it would make a good binding, too.
I quilted this very simply along all the seam lines, and I think that works well for this quilt.
Scrappy Bowties is so much fun to look at - there are fun fabrics everywhere! Bicycles, birds (lots of penguins, lol!), text fabric, dots of every color, florals, solids, batiks, Christmas fabric, and even a few of those those ugly prints that just blend right in.
Like most quilters, my favorite quilt is always the one I'm working on right now, and this one is definitely a favorite. I'm planning to send it off to some special extended family who I've never given a quilt to. I hope they'll enjoy using it as much as I've enjoyed making it!
Since this a Friday finish, I'm linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts, and also sharing at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday because this quilt has been one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects for 2017-2018.
