Design Wall Monday-1/17/11

Happy Monday! It is the first time in three weeks that I am organized enough to get something up for DWM!
I was working several days getting my RRCB top done, and needed a break. This bowtie pattern was a nice break! The bowtie blocks are from a Moda Bakeshop pattern and finish at 4". The middle of the bowtie is a folded dimentional center. I added the plain squares to make an 8" finished block and here's the setting i am sewing it into. I plan to do a scrappy border using 2.5 by 4.5 pieces. This whole quilt is made from pieces I had precut from scraps.

This is one of the fabrics I used in this quilt. It was from a grabbag of fabric scraps I picked up somewhere last year. I am not sure if it is cotton or a blend, but I love that cute touch of embroidery in this very scrappy quilt!

And here is my Roll Roll Cotton Boll-still in pieces. The center of the quilt is together, The inner border strips are sewn together, and the outer border strips are ready to go. I am waiting until I have a full day off before I tackle the final part of getting the borders all on. Then I need to make a backing...! And a label! And get it quilted! This has been a fun and challenging project and I love the final quilt! Thanks Bonnie Hunter!

Have a happy week everyone and enjoy the quiltmaking process!
God Bless

What fun bowties. I've used the dimensional technique before and it is s fast and easy.

I am having such a great time looking through the links today -- several Mono Challenges in Yellow and RRBC by Bonnie Hunter. Your RRBC is great! Even though we are all following the same directions, it is amazing how different each one turns out by pulling from our personal stash.

The more I am seeing of everyone's RRCB quilts, the more I am loving it! It's such a great design and the colors are so fun.

The bow tie layout is great and adding the sweet embroidered fabric is great. I think the RRCB is a great quilt too.
