I’ve been busy behind the scenes, working hard to finish my second Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, Bow Ties. This is a cot sized quilt and will be donated in due course. Each month I dutifully stitched four Bow Tie blocks in the colour suggested by Angela of Sew Scrappy. With all the blocks stitched into a top, I took it outside to use the large picnic table to pin all the layers together.
Pinning it all together
Gemma kept the quilt under control in between my machine quilting sessions. It was all folded up neatly so she didn’t get caught up in the pins.

Binding came next, and I used up some cut strips to make some scrappy red binding. And I used flannel on the back to make it nice and cuddly.
Must admit that I enjoyed making these blocks. Maybe someday I will make myself a bed quilt, perhaps not in rainbow colours. I rather like the look of these blocks arranged in circles – perhaps I’ll add this design to my futures Bucket List.
