    Can anyone give me some measurements to make a Bowtie Wreath block? Maybe something using 3 1/2 or 4 inch squares? I'm wanting to use just one color for the bowtie and a cream backing.

    I found this block on a website. Hope it is the same as the one you are talking about.

    Looking at it, it looks like you could cut 4" squares.
    8 (4" squares) background
    8 (4" squares) green
    4 (4" squares) red-then subcut these into quarter square triangles by cutting both diagonals.(If you want one color-use green for these also.) You could do it with 2 squares and only sew these on the background, but I think I would sew them just as if they were red-but use green.

    Or you could use 3 1/2" squares.
