    Scrappy Bow Tie quilt

    A friend of my mom's ask me to make this for her. She made all the bow tie blocks herself and didn't know what to do with them. I had to think about it for a while but this is what I came up with. She sent along a huge bag of fabrics for the extra squares and there was a 4 yard piece of white in the bag too. She wants scrappy prairie points around the outside edge. I think that will finish it nicely.

    I like the way you set this together. It sets off the bow ties really well.
