Cheddar Bow-Ties

I jumped on Bonnie's Cheddar Bow-Ties bandwagon as soon as she announced it. At first, I was going to play by the rules and just do them as leaders and enders, but that didn't work out so well. I lost a few and sewed a few together backwards and switched to a more forgiving leader and ender project.

Then Bonnie posted pictures of her quilt loaded onto the long arm and I started to wonder where my cheddar background fabric had gotten to... I think I was still up to my ears in the Nancy Drew quilt at that point. Something was going on.

Saturday, I was going through the dauntingly huge bag of scraps to cut squares for baby quilts and decided I should cut some bow ties while I was at it. I've cut and  pieced fifty bow ties in the past two days and I know there's a baggie of cut pieces here that I can't find.

They'll turn up before I'm ready to assemble the top. Or they won't.

Love the Cheddar.

Nice looking group of cheddary bow ties already, Michelle. I got waylaid trying to figure out if I wanted a diagonal allover set, or maybe those cute circular donuts, or maybe a barnraising type of quadrants. With the indecision, I left them all in a basket!

Love your bow ties and my guess, they will show up once you start hunting for some fabric to bind your quilt's to hoping I'm wrong :)

Absolutely lovely! Bowties are so fun! I have two flimsys of bowties. They are first on my list to quilt after the first of the year.

I love bowties and cheddar, but didn't jump on this bandwagon :) Hope all your missing pieces pop out of their hiding places soon!

Mine are being done as leaders/enders, so they have quite a ways to go. Yours look grand. Makes me want to go sew up some more.

those bow ties will surface--they're lurking in a bag somewhere. The Corning ware dishes--I remember my mom having them in the 70's--and they were microwave safe then. Over 40 years ago--egad--my age is showing!
