Finally!!! My Katie Jump Rope Quilt is finished. This makes me SO happy! I've been working on this quilt longer than I wanted to. The cutting and piecing of this bow tie quilt was simple, but the applique of the center ties was a little more time consuming than I had anticipated. Not sure if corner piecing would have been much faster though. I was limited with the size scraps I purchased, so applique was my only option for this pattern. And I've really wanted to make a bow tie quilt ever since I fell in love with the collection. I am so happy, I'm smiling:D

Okay, so I made this pattern up myself and gathered some helpful tips from a similar quilt done on Flickr! here. Although this quilter had suggested a double-sided fusible web, I used stitch witchery and it was fabulous. Possible pattern coming soon. I just have to compile my steps.
Size: 55" x 68"
Fabric: Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt, Kona Cotton White & Ash
I wish it wasn't so HOT out! I'd love to cuddle up with this quilt right now. I'm working with verysmall scraps left over for a toss pillow. This is a great start to a beautiful weekend, don't you think?
