I finished the top of the bow-tie doll quilt.  It measures 15" x 17".

The pink and brown HST doll quilts are totally finished.

Small one measures 13" x 15 1/2".  Larger one measures 15 1/4" x 17".

I saw a new BOW (block of the week) being offered by Moda designers and decided it was something I could keep up with.  Each Wednesday a new block will be presented on the blog of one of the 6 designers for Moda, including Betsy Chutchian, Jo Morton, Lynn Hagmeier, Lisa Bongean, Jan Patek and Moda.  Click here to get to Betsy's post that explains everything.  

These are the bundle of Betsy's new fabrics that I ordered from her.

This is the first block, which was designed by Lynn.  All the patterns are free and measure 6" finished.  You can start this any time, even after a couple months as the patterns will still be up and there will be 48 of them.

I love the background fabric.  It's from Betsy's new line - Rachel Remembered.  


  1. Your bow ties little quilt will be so cute when finished, just as the HST quilts are. You've tempted me to try the BOW; at least I've printed the Block 1 pattern. Yours is so pretty, and you know I love R/W/B. Surely I can make time to make one block a week. We'll see. ---"Love"

  2. Your little quilts are so sweet. I especially love the pink/brown ones.
    Good job on your blockheads block. I've not done more than print out the pattern. Still telling myself not to get involved. : )

  3. Congrats on the finishes! Well done on the beginning! :^D I have saved the pattern of block one, in case I get a dull moment and need something new. lol.
    Love your little bowtie quilt. So small, so cheerful! ;^)

  4. Cute finishes! The doll quilts are adorable. I have been following posts about the Blockheads BOW and I saved the pattern. I don't know yet if I have time to work on it, but it sounds like fun.

  5. Your little quilts are adorable! Love love love the bow ties. I'll be watching your BOTW project with interest as I'll be looking for blocks to use in my CW proejct..

  6. I like your whirligig block. I want to do this as well, as soon as I pick out my background fabric

  7. What darling little quilts! I'm a fan of brown and pink too!
    Is the designer blocks called Blockheads? Lovely new fabric.

  8. the little bow tie is so cute!
