What I Pieced Wednesday: 9

Welcome to another WIP Wednesday! 

This weeks block for the skill-builder is a bow-tie block.

I decided not to make all four different, and I like the symmetry it creates. 

July's blocks. 

All my blocks together...
I've realized that I'm using a lot of white.  I think to balance it out I need to do more blocks with solid blue and solid red as a base.  Any other suggestions?  

Want to join us? Do it!

Also, remember how I signed up for this friendship bracelet swap?  Well, I got the string for my three and I'm excited about how they've turned out (I'm keeping the final project a secret until my swap partners have time to receive them).  This was so fun! 
(Don't worry, this is for three different pieces, not all one)

Hope you're having a fabulous week! 


  1. I love the patriotic fabrics! So nice.


  2. Your blocks look great! That is going to be a very fun summery quilt when you are done!

  3. Your blocks are looking so good, love them. I haven't done my bow ties yet, its added to my ever growing to do list!

  4. I love how you did your SBS blocks in red, white, and blue! I'm already doing that quiltalong but I thought about doing the Summer Series Sampler in some red, white and blue that I won!


I love comments...and I try to reply to all by e-mail, so be watching for me (: (unless you're a no-reply blogger, then I'll comment back here!)
