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.
