'Little Bows' is a patchwork baby sized quilt designed to be used in the nursery in any way that you would enjoy. It can be a table topper, a sofa decorator, a basket liner, a wall quilt, or a cot quilt or play mat.
The quilt is made entirely by hand, no machine, pieced and quilted using best quality cotton fabrics and soft, pliable cotton wadding. A co-ordinating alphabet design fabric has been added to the back. If you look closely you will see that it says B is for Butterfly, S is for snail and so on.
The front has been pieced using the English Paper Piecing technique, in the traditional Bow Tie pattern, and echo quilted with Perle cotton embroidery thread around the squares and bow shapes.
The quilt is colour fast and machine washable on a gentle cycle. However, I recommend hand washing to preserve the life of the quilt and prevent the quilting stitches from catching on other items in the wash. When storing it, it is better to roll it than fold it, to avoid hard creases. However you can iron it on both sides, on a wool setting.
The quilt measures 81 x 61 cm or 32 x 24 ins.
This is the traditional Bow Tie pattern. I thought that sounded rather old fashioned, so I wanted to create a brighter, more modern version of the same design.
