Default Bow Ties are Cool is now finished (w/ a timey whimey border)

Just finished this quilt, based on 60' triangles w/ stripe fabric. The triangles were cut from strips that were 1 7/8ths inch wide. 4 different stripe fabrics were used. The backing is minky (my first time using minky) and is completely assembled and quilted QAYG. No pattern to direct you to I made it up from my head.

This was before I stitched the fancy stitch row, but from this distance you probably couldn't have seen it anyway.

I didn't use batting between the minky and front, at first I was really upset by this minky fuzz break through, but after I completed it I was actually very happy w/ it, it reminds me of the etching art we used to do in grade school.


I love this minky print it is fun but not so juvenile, more folk arty, and even better it was on clearance for just $4 a yard!

Here is the fancy stitching, you can also see the stripe in the binding that isn't as clear in the other pics


Some details of the hexiefied stripe fabric made into rectangles
