Bow Tie Blocks

I actually have a box of churn dash  blocks that I have been making out of scraps for the last two years.  I have no idea how many I have now, but not too few nor too many.  I need to use that as a Leaders and Enders project, (why didn't I think of that a year ago?)

Anyhoo, I just came across this bow tie block from Anna Lena.  She provides a nice basic tutorial for you to make either 6 inch or 3 inch blocks.  I am thinking it would be nice to have both in a quilt.  I think I will start making those bow ties as a L&E Project.  Thanks Bonnie Hunter for thinking of that most obvious but not realized fact that they can be done!  And thanks, Anna Lena for putting together the tutorial for the bow ties!



  1. I like the way you are saving your scraps! I wish I had seen that tutorial before I made my bow tie quilt. I did everything the same way except for pressing that one seam open.

  2. I love the churn dash blocks. Your blog is new to me; you left the comment right before mine on stash manicure so I clicked. I've followed the link and will be making a few bow ties, too. You're right. It will be a great L&E project.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
