Well, almost done. One more nine unit Bow Tie block and that is it for me. 324 three inch finished Bow Tie blocks. 1944 pieces total. I can't take it anymore. I don't know how these gals who are making a king size quilt with two inch finished Bow Tie Blocks have it in them. Seriously? I see Bow Tie blocks when I close my eyes. Enough already.
In an ideal world, I think I would like this to be one more round of blocks bigger. 252 more Bow Tie blocks. That would be a really nice sized quilt. But nope, I don't have the stamina. I will add a narrow containment border and a brown and red Civil War print fabric I have in my stash for an outer border. It will be a good lap size quilt that I can toss over the arm of the sofa or the back of a chair.
Time to move on to a new project. I can't decide if I want to take a break from Civil War fabrics for awhile, or start putting together the Barbara Brackman Stars in a Time Warp blocks. That one coordinates perfectly with this Bow Tie quilt, so they do kind of want to be finished around the same time. You know I will keep you posted.
Oh! I bought my new German made Rowenta steam iron. And I left it at my sister's house three hours away. We were having a graduation party for my two nieces and now I suppose one of them is going to think I left it there as one of their graduation gifts. Keep your fingers crossed that I will be able to straighten this all out.
