I am so excited today to be sharing my newest quilt with you and Moda Bake Shop. I have been working on this quilt for a while now and I am glad to be finally sharing it with you. It has killed me not to talk about it along the way. I poured my heart and soul into this quilt, so I hope you like it as much as I do.
For this tutorial I took the traditional bowtie block and re-designed it to use a layer cake pre-cut. I used a Vintage Modern layer cake by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, which I loved working with. This fabric collection definitely gave this traditional quilt a modern look.
I am also excited to be gifting this quilt to my aunt. She is kind of like our family historian and big into Ancestry.com. She is a collector of stories, pictures, and art. She has paintings from my grandmother, carved wood blocks from my great-grandfather, and counted other items. Now a quilt from me. I am so proud to have a piece of my “art” to be included in such good company.
For this quilt I used Kona Snow and the Vintage Modern fabric collection. I used the Bowtie Circle block in a 5 by 6 layout. I echoed the flow of this quilt in my machine quilting using off-white cotton thread and I pieced my scraps into the back. The finished quilt measures about 58" x 68".
Be sure to check out my tutorial over at Moda Bake Shop. I am so proud of it.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great week!
