Sort of leaned toward red, black, white, and gray.
Every so often I'll order repro fat quarters on sale from Hancock's. They really come in handy.
Maybe this could pass for a Turkey Red Robe print?
I'm participating in Barb V.'s Civil War Bowtie block swap. I need to make 82 and mail them to her by the end of October. They are so much fun! After Barb does her "magic" she'll send 82 different ones back to me and I get to make a wonderful little quilt :) What could be better?
And talking about Bowties. . . In 2002 I made two baby quilts for my grandchildren-to-be. We knew they were going to be twins . . .
My inspiration came from the Baby Bows quilt in the Spring 2001 issue of McCall's Quilting Vintage Quilts.
It just so happens (Grandma's intuition?) I was thinking a girl and a boy. And that's what we got :) This is Isabella's quilt.
And this is Max's quilt. I pieced all those little Bowties by hand unlike the ones I'm making now.
