From Jen Kingwell's book Quilt Lovely
This are a bit fiddly to make so it's nice to just make a few each month in RSC colors.
The job is much easier if you make templates ala Gayle (Mangofeet) plus she's the one that advised me I could cut these easily from 3.5 inch scraps.
Six inch Bow Ties
I didn't have many 3.5 aqua scraps left after I made Glitter blocks but I did find some more purple scraps hidden away in a baggie so added those in. This time I remembered the corners are 2 inch pieces and NOT 1.5 inch pieces. This quilt will end up with a few purple misfits I made last month. These are scraps so I'm not ripping and remaking. That rarely happens in this house although I have been known to be a little anal-retentive about a few blocks in my time. But life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
3 Inch Snowballs with white corners. These corners are 1.5 inches. Again...just a few aquas but I did find that hidden baggie of purples. These blocks may go with some 3 inch 9 patches into a quilt. Or not.
