BOW TIES AND BRACKMAN!


I DID DECIDE TO ADD A 3 1/2" BORDER TO MY BOW TIE QUILT.   WITH FIVE ROWS ACROSS AND SIX ROWS DOWN.  JUST THE RIGHT SIZE TO HANG ON MY WALL  OR TO PUT ON MY TABLE.   IT WAS ON THE ADVICE OF MY QUIRKY SIDE TO ADD THE  CHEDDAR BOW TIES.



THIS  IS MY BARBRA BRACKMAN BLOCK  # 44 .THIS IS A FREE BLOCK GIVEN  BY BARBRA , WEEKLY ON SATURDAY MORNINGS  FROM HER BLOG ON CIVIL WAR QUILTS.  THERE ARE A TOTAL OF 52 BLOCKS TO BE GIVEN, SO WE ARE ALMOST AT THE END OF OUR TRAIL.  SHE HAS ALSO GIVEN A LAYOUT FOR THE BLOCKS ALSO ;  HOWEVER I THINK I WILL USE MY OWN  LAYOUT . I DON'T WANT A QUILT AS LARGE AS HERS WILL TURN OUT.  I PREFER SMALLER.

TODAY HAS BEEN A NICE FALL DAY ,  AS FALL DAYS GO.  JUST A LIGHT JACKET NEEDED.  NO SNOW AS OF YET;UNLIKE THOSE COLD EASTERN  STATES!!  STAY INSIDE AND STITCH!

ALL FOR NOW ,
MARTHA
