When a friend recently asked Di B and me if we’d make a quilt for a Very Loved Person we couldn’t have been happier. After all, about the only thing more fun than creating a gift quilt is doing it in collaboration with a good buddy.
Wait, I’m wrong. Having a treasured friend halfway across the world joining in makes it even better! Take a look at this blog post by Linda. Di, Linda and I together made 150 fun and fabulous bow tie blocks on the same white-on-white starry background, and today Di and I started to assemble them (Linda, we missed you!).
These were Linda’s blocks.
After initially laying all 150 bowties any-which-way on the floor, we stood back, and surveyed our blocks.
We looked at them through the camera view-finder, and even tried the
equally effective but less scientific method of screwing up our eyes and squinting to see the overall distribution of lights and darks and different colours.
