Extra Extra!

I added one extra row to my baby bow tie quilt.

DerbyDog was eager to help me decide on block layout.

And then he helped me pick out some fabric for the borders. He chose the dark blue with polka-dots.

So now the baby bow tie is a good-sized quilt at 36" x 36".

I'm not quite sure how to quilt this one. Any suggestions?

Cute! Love the look! Nice to have such a helpful and cute partner! Hey DerbyDog!!! I think straight line diagonal quilting would work great and go fast too!

Well, he has very good taste, doens't he?

I agree with andsewon, straight diagonal lines.

Straight diagonal lines sounds good to me. The quilt looks awesome. I love it!

Awww, Look! Derby Dog is a quilter! I love bow tie quilts. I've been hand quilting one for ... errr .... maybe .... 10 years? I'm just doing 1/4" quilting around each piece. Diagonals would look great too!
