Going from Flower to Flower!

A little bit of this, a little bit of that, and not a lot of any one thing going on here. The only thing I've managed to complete is this one block. This is the latest block in my LYS $5 quilt. I have never sewn a bowtie before and I must say that I enjoyed it! For some reason, I didn't think I would. It came out right sized too!!!
I hope you're buzzing from flower to flower just like me and enjoying every minute of it.

Happy Stitches!

I love it!! I've always loved bow ties! I don't think I've ever made one though. Glad it was fun!

Jackie said...

Bowties are fun and these are just darling! Wonderful job!

Dee said...

Very pretty. I love the combination of fabrics. That center fabric is outstanding!

Good job on the piecing. I know how precise you have to be. That's why I knit. LOL

Stephanie said...

I am very impressed. I am so intimidated by quilting. I need quick, fast projects or I never finish them!

Carol said...

Love the square Jackie! I have one to do soon in my next quilt project. I'm glad to hear it wasn't as difficult as it looks. I got your email and I'm trying to reply with useful info...so please don't think I left you hanging. :)

Bow ties! It's a favorite patch of mine too. For her millenium quilt, a quilting friend made 2000 bow tie patches, each in a different print. It was very neat. So is yours.

I like the fabrics and colors in your bowtie block!!! Good job!!!

Thelma said...

For some reason, I've always liked the look of a bowtie block, but didn't think I would enjoy piecing one. Your block looks great, I may have to add this to my ever growing list of things to try!

Love bowties! They are great for showing off fabrics too. I seem to be fluttering from flower to flower too. Can't seem to get any one thing done at the moment.

AAAWWWW - wonderful Jackie - I love the look but of course not being a quilter - I've never heard of the "bowtie" block. Yes of course I've been buzzing along but mostly stitching and not much knitting. Look forward to seeing you soon - Mel

Lois said...

It's lovely Jackie! Those bow ties are so cute!

Littlebit said...

Oooh, Jackie! What a great block! I've never done a bowtie block, either. Love the way yours turned out.

Berit said...

This looks good--I've been wanting to make something similar, but it's more complicated, lol!

Micki said...

Where did you get the pattern? It is super cute!
Love the way you chose the colours!

Love the bowties! That block reminds me a bit of klojses that are so popular in blogland at the moment. Great job!
