    Bow Tie Pattern

    Does anyone know of a way of making a bow tie block besides the one in Quilters Cache`? Looking for something that isn't paper pieced or have Y seams. Thank you in advance.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    here is the 10 minute method. you could use the same fabric for the opposite corners and the 'knot' in the center

    I make them by hand sewing like I do a yo yo. In fact the Yo Yo Ladies of Paducah had the quilt show attendees running to buy charm packs from vendors when demoing how to do it. I remember the first vendor closest to the Ladies sold out of all her charm packs the first day. The pdf is available on this board but I can't find the post just now.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Have you tried googling 3d bowties? I made a bowtie quilt with recycled ties. It turned out great.

    I LOVE the 3-D bow ties. They are kind of like eating salted peanuts - you want to get the the next one-and the next one......
