    Hey Sharon!
    I was gone all day yesterday painting a friends kitchen and I just now am reading your message for help with the May row. Just PM me if you still need help, and yes the instructions for May's row are a bit vague! But it's such a nice rowto do!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Great job, Maryanna!
    It is hard to believe we are at the halfway point... That is if we don't count borders and quilting. OK... We are at the one third finished.... And still having fun!

    Yes TexasGranny, you said it! We're all having fun! And I don't know about anyone else, but I'm learning a lot! I always wanted to make a quilt with bow ties, and now I know how! time has flown by! I hope Bill will do this again next year!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    Ok, here is my June row, I didn't want the blank squares so I just made more bowties, plus, like some others, I'm running low on the background material.
    I tried to cover all occasions and moods. Some for formal, some for casual, and all in between. Even a couple for holiday and special occasions. Smiles. This was a fun and easy row as long as I kept my pieces in order, but I still used zelda the seam ripper a few (ahem) times. Hugggs and smilesss everyone!

    PS: I'm thinking that a 1 1/2" strip of background between the two center bowties would look better. What do you all think?

    Thanks, I did play with that idea, but gave me too much bare areas of background IMO. I'm glad you like my row!! I have so much fun doing this. Hugs and smiles.

    Such fun! Well I am still on June! lol only got one cut and sewn and it was not as I want it to be so will be starting over! But I do have it figured out! I think I was not seeing the pattern coming together with colors. Best to have just forged ahead and made one and found out without fretting over it! Bowties look easy enough.. I should not say that .. might jinx myself!

    Fabulous bow ties Wildyard! I love them and they changes you made! Your fabrics are wonderful! Great job!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna
    PS. I too have fallen in low with bow ties and plan on making a quilt featuring them in the future!

    TexasGranny...it is true that we are certainly moving along with this one - it is a great project.....

    MaryAnna.....glad that we are all having fun....and I think that we are all going a bit outside of our comfort zone on some of the blocks with the tiny pieces, etc. - that's the beauty of a project like this - it get us out of the norm and allows us to try something different...that just may help us in some other projects.....

    We will have to see what Claudia comes up with for next year - now you have me thinking already :-)....she does have lots of other patterns on her website for BOM's - check them out - if you have any questions - send Claudia a message - tell her that you are a part of the BOM group on the quilting board.....she's watching the group!!! :-)

    Wildyard..
    I love your take on June...it's great..LOVE IT!!!


    Sharon,
    Looking forward to seeing yours...just shout if you need anything!!!! I'm not far away CYBER SPEAKING :-)


    MaryAnna,
    This was also the first time for me with Bowties and I think that it would be a fun block to do for a whole quilt.....it is fun to try different things here and see where they are going to pop up in the future :-)

    Check out this mini-bowtie quilt from QuiltersCache made with 1930 repro's....I am in love all over again :-) Isn't this one beautiful.....she has the picture of a complete quilt on Page 2....

    Page 1:
    http://quilterscache.com/M/MiniBowTieBlock.html

    Page 2: http://quilterscache.com/M/MiniBowTieBlock_Page2.html


    Here's another pattern that she has but it's using templates...but it would be easy to change to just regular piecing rather than doing the templates....

    Thanks Bill! I've already printed out the bow tie pattern, I just love it! And it would be a great way to use up those repro fabrics! I've seen some baby quilt patterns using the bow ties as well and intermixing chennile, flannel, and cotton fabrics together. Bow ties are great! I've learned so much from every block we've done! Thanks!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna
