On my design wall today are some bow tie blocks in the layout that I am using for my brother's quilt
Today I bought a few more reds and some surprise fabrics for the bow ties. I will be mixing in new scraps for the double four patch blocks so that is why they are not yet complete. Doesn't look like much yet, does it! The trip to my not-so-local quilt shop 25 miles away was just lovely. I had the sunroof open and was enjoying the warm summer air as I drove through the backroads and farmland. It helped that I was driving Grant's car, which has better seats and way better suspension than my poor 17 year old car (which had to be towed to the auto shop for a new ignition switch). The Cotton and Chocolate Quilt Shop was pre-selling entry tickets to the International Quilt Festival and that was my main reason for going there.
