another batch of bowties

I spent a chunk of yesterday afternoon sorting through the new-to-me fabric and some scraps I already had, cutting pieces for my ambitious scrap quilts. A  1 1/2" strip for Little Trips, the hearts, and the Lego quilt...a 2 1/2" strip for whatever, and a 2" strip for the bowties and whatever...

If my last count was correct, I only need about a hundred and fifty more bowties. Then it's time to assemble them and start fussing with the idea of a border. I wish I'd known I was going to have a border from day one, but I was bound and determined that this was going to be a borderless quilt until I saw Bonnie's and fell in love with her scrappy pieced border. It would be nice to have the same fabrics I used for the bowties in that border. But if I don't, who will ever notice?

To see more design walls, hop over to Patchwork Times. And come check tomorrow for the new baby quilt tutorial.

How many are you aiming for again? I made 27 last night - but mine are 2.5"...I am up to 112 of 365. Our guild did a Jelly Roll Race the other night and as I gave the instructions, the first step was "cut off 8 inches on the first strip - and give it to me for my bow ties"
