Speaking of family, I unearthed a WIP that has a deadline of October. My other older brother, Tyler, turns 50 and since I made my other older brother a quilt, of course I said I'd make Tyler one. My design includes 50 bowties, each in a different fabric, some solid background squares, and double four-patch blocks made from scraps and stash. I am trying not to buy anything specifically for this quilt other than the background--yet--though a backing will be in order at some point!
I am calling that center block a double four-patch, not really sure that's the right description though. Green, blue, brown, red and "other" are my color groups, 10 bowties of each.
Got the browns all picked out.
And the greens. I may have to break down and purchase more reds since traditional prints are depleted from my stash and scraps presently. Happily there will be plenty of opportunity at the Quilt Festival next weekend. Plans are coming together for the big day, which we have decided will be Saturday. The show is open until 7 pm so that gives an extra 4 hours over the Sunday schedule. With nine folks going, we will need some of that just to find each other at times during the day!
