Another UFO bites the dust! As is the case with most of my UFOs, I wound up making additional blocks to round out the size, which turned out to be a neat 37" x 37". When I started, I had 14 of the 4" bow-tie blocks. The original blocks were made sometime during the 90's, I'm sure with the background fabric being tone-on-tone muslin.
I have a LOT of brown prints dating back to the 70's and some were traded pieces. The alternating blocks is a cotton print purchased in the 80's. Ditto for the accent frame and binding. I used to do all my bindings by hand, but I have been practicing doing it by machine and I seem to have developed a knack for that!
As for the quilting, keep it elliptical, baby! Just freehand melon slices on the grid. The backing is a tan cotton tone-on-tone that is very subtle and soft.
This is a great size for a baby quilt, table topper, or wall hanging. I'm thinking about putting it in the etsy shop.
For the record, today is the hottest day of the year here with 97% humidity. Not exactly quilt weather.
