Big Finish: Little Bow Ties with Grey


I recently finished this baby boy quilt.  It's going to an old friend of mine for her baby boy expected later this year.  I posted about this quilt when it was in progress here.

Baby Boy Quilt: Little Bowties with Grey

I used Kona Medium Gray and various scraps of orange, aqua, and lime green for the front.  The squares are 6" finished.  I didn't want the quilting to interfere with the colored bow ties, so I stitched simple diagonal lines through the center of each one.

For the back of the quilt, I pieced together the fabric remaining from the bow ties on the front and added some grey strips to extend the length.  The scrappy binding also features the prints from the bow ties.
