Flirting with Bow Ties

Ever since my read of the Plaids book blogged here, I have had this idea to make a bow tie quilt. There was an incredible bow tie quilt made entirely of directional prints in that book that really made an impression on me.

I checked out another book from the Berkeley Public Library today with even more inspirations to share with you all. One bow tie quilt for me, a drunkard’s path quilt especially for my friends Peppermint Pinwheels and Dan Rouse of Piece and Press who have both talked of Drunkard’s Path recently, and some other quilts that caught my eye. This book was a historical reference and more of a show-and-tell book rather than a show-you-how-its-done book. May you be inspired, too!
