Hello, sweet lovelies!  I’m so glad you are here.  We’ve got a very simple block today to work on this week.  Bow ties!  Do you remember that bow tie quilt I finished long ago?  Well, everytime I think of bow ties now, I think of my grandmother and how much I miss her.

The bow ties today are MUCH easier to make then those fussy hand stitched ones.  Let’s get to it!
