Fit to be Tied

2/24/2011

 
Oscar Wilde said “A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life,” and so it goes with my leap into quilting. Inspired by a pretty bunch of fat quarters I put together and the linen strips Jenn used in the mug rug I got at the swap, I decided to 'go for it.' I cut  5x5 pieces (I believe they are called 'charm squares' in the quilting world) to make all the bow tie blocks and picked up the linen-colored solid from Cool Cottons in SE Portland. Here is a preview of the design:

I think when I finish this one I will make a mate using a box of shirting stripes that is collecting dust in my basement. Maybe I'll name them the Duke and Duchess of Windsor!
