    This is one of five I have done (just about to post pics of two more!) A friend gave me a bag of 6" squares cut from shirts last year to make "a quilt" 2 have already been sent, 2 others ready for quilting and this was the last of the scraps with a few fat quarters added!! I hadn't realised there were so many squares!! The challenge w as to find different blocks to make with the same fabrics!!

    I love your idea to use selvedges for a Kindle cover. And the quilts are so nice!

    Very nice. I don't usually care for the bowtie pattern, but I like yours very much. I think it's because of the color scheme you used. Almost must say that I like the idea of doing something small with selvages.

    Thanks! Can't claim the selvedge idea as mine! I was inspired by a book by Karen Griska 'Quilts from the Selvage Edge'! She also has a blog www.selvageblog.blogspot.com .

    Never been a great fan of 'Bow Tie' but loved doing this block!! went together really quickly. I have a layer cake I think I might use and do it again! These squares were slightly less than 5", bit fiddly! Think I might do another couple of borders on it yet.

    I like how it looks like a cathedral window in the centre Hilary, it's very effective!
