Six Inch Bow Ties
This is a Rainbow Scrap Challenge carry over project from last year. I've been making these from 3.5 inch scraps. Most of these yellow tone on tone scraps are left over from a Jacob's Ladder quilt finished last year.
I now have 197 bow ties. My target is 224 for a 14 x 16 layout. I'm almost there!
With 3.5 inch scraps I'm also making 3 inch Snowballs. Last year I made 230 of them with light corners so thought I'd make them with dark corners this year. I was thinking I may alternate dark and light corners in a quilt similar to what I did when making my Lozenge quilt although I haven't ruled out combining them with another 3 inch block like nine patch or rails.
And that strip at the bottom is what gets made when I get to the end of a 3.5 inch scrap that is smaller than a 3.5 inch square. At the end of the year I'll see what I have and will probably make a Chinese Coin quilt or use them as a border.
