Thank YouIt's been a tough week. Your kind words of encouragement and support have helped a great deal. Heartfelt thanks to you all.
And now, back to my therapy - quilting.
Moda Blockheads Week #13Question of the Week: What is the best tip you've ever learned?
Use the best quality tools available (advice from my Dad, who was in the lumber business for decades and has the tools to prove it) and, when it comes to 1/4" seams - consistency, consistency, consistency. These words of advice have served me well over the years. Consistent 1/4" seams come with practice. Who doesn't love that? All the more reason to sew, sew, sew.
Block #13 - Bowtie QuartetHere are Kathy's & Joy's Bowtie Quartet blocks. Joy preferred a bit smaller "knot" for her bowtie opting for a 3/4" square (top right). I like both options!

I've had several requests over the past few weeks for a traditionally pieced option for my blocks, too. Ask and ye shall receive! Click on the link below for traditional piecing instructions that use the connecting corner method for Bowtie Quartet.

I also need to get caught up with last week's Layered Patchwork instructions for Carrie's Puzzled block. So fun to see all of your blocks on FB!
