Cheddar Bow Ties "DONE"

I started this quilt in 2011 as a leaders and enders project along with Bonnie at Quiltville. I am so glad to call it "DONE".


I love how it turned out, especially since it was my first attempt at free motion quilting feathers.


I could have kept going and made a larger quilt, but I didn't think I could stand to make any more!  It finishes at about 70 inches square, so its a great throw size quilt.


That makes two recent finishes of old UFOs.  Feels good to finish them.  Its a lot of fun to start new projects, but its more fun to finish old ones

Debbie, your feathered border looks awesome! The curvy border pattern complements the straight lines of the bow tie blocks beautifully. Congrats on another finish :)

Your feathers look amazing. I have a hard time keeping mine from looking like tongue depressors, even when just drawing them on paper. ;)
