Then I cut a 2" square from the bow tie fabric for the center.
I layered the center piece along the side of the angle cut and sewed a quarter inch seam.
I started and stopped one quarter inch away from the ends. I repeated this for all four sides of the middle square.
Then I simply sewed a quarter inch seam from the outside of the block to toward the middle. I did backstitch to secure the seams.
I flipped it over and gave it a quick press. That was too easy!
might will have to make some more of these
Enjoy every stitch!
I've made bowties just like this, with the y seam. I think they look more like bowties than all the "easy" versions. People hear "y seams" and freak a bit, but they really aren't hard, just a bit more tedious because you can't chain piece.ReplyDelete
Never tried bow ties but your post makesReplyDelete
it seem easy.
Wow, it is years since I tried these. Do I sense a bow tie quilt in the making?ReplyDelete
Hi Diane! For some reason, your comments are no longer coming to my "inbox" so I almost missed this one. I wonder why that is? I do think a bow tie quilt is inevitable, but I haven't officially started one yet. :)ReplyDelete
Hope you are doing well!
I agree with Jo Ann, these do look terrific - like the old fashioned real ones.ReplyDelete
