Bowties Unite!!!

Until a few months ago, the bowtie block really did nothing for me.  Here is what it looks like...
                                   

Back here, when I talked about using the Normandy Court fabric collection for a quilt other than the one I bought it for, I had looked at several different patterns....and had settled on a 16 patch block.  

Then, I saw this quilt...and fell in love with the bowtie block.
sorry, no idea where I first saw this.

What really cinched it for me, though, was seeing this quilt...

How could I not make one?  So, that's what I am working on.  I have 36 blocks done and am starting to put them together...

I am super excited about this quilt top!!

But, you know what?  Once it is done, I really need to NOT start another quilt until...well, until a lot of things, but most importantly...until I baste and quilt and bind a few of the flimsies I have waiting.

I have a pattern that is done with plaid homespuns and love the look, but if I can't sew, cut and piece, I get lost, lol.

The bowtie use in a quilt looks so much better than a single block... i do like the color combo you have going there!
