Bow Tie Scrap Quilt 5

And so it begins, the long haul of handquilting this quilt. I just couldn't fact trying to quilt this in my machine so am doing it by hand. I tried shadowing the white bits in white and then in red, the red won. I think it looks really cheery and fresh. There is not much more done than is visible in the photo so I have a long way to go. Mind you it will keep my knees warm this winter while I work on it.


  1. It's fabulous! I just love the stitching with red. I also think the striped border is super.

  2. Lovely and bright, just what is needed on a winters afternoon!!

  3. Quilting in RED thread! Sensational. I think it makes your quilt sing. Great idea.
    Love your knitting... I like to knit, too, but your knitting is inspirational!
