Since I started quilting I already loved seeing other peoples bow tie quilt.
So it was no question to add this darling quilt on my to do list last year.
This autumn I finally had a reason to make that quilt. My sis turned 27 early december so I wanted something really special for her...something handmade which will remind that she is deeply loved by her big sis ervery time she uses the quilt.
Since my sis is getting a new sofa soon I didn't know which colors would be the best.
So I went with my Denyse Schmidt fabrics which I have for such a long time now.
Working on this quilt was so much fun. It's such an easy pattern but the result is so stunning.
I love how the bow ties form this darling pattern.
I quilted the bow tie quilt in free motion of course. It's quick and the result is always so lovely.
I'm getting better every time I quilt free motion. Sadly I can only quilt those bigger quilts at my MIL's home since my sewing table is to small. At my MIL's home I'm allowed to occupy the dinning table.
For the binding I used several pieces of the Denyse Schmidt fabrics.
The backing is a vintage duvet cover which I bought from ebay especially for the quilt.
In the future I plan to use vintage duvet covers only for the backing. They make perfect backings since they are cheap and I don't need to piece several fabrics.
The left overs from the quilt were made into a matching pinwheel pillow cover.
