Summer Bow Tie Quilt

DH had a sleepless night last night so has slept most of the day and I've been on my own.  I decided to try to catch up on the Summer Bow Tie Quilt Along.  As you can see mine is going to be scrappy and so far I have only raided my orange, yellow and purple scraps, the orange was rather lacking, lol.  I liked this setting when I saw it on Pleasant Home.   It looks like it has been going on since June 19th, and I made 20 blocks today, so I think that I'm almost caught up.  I just figured, and it looks like I am 1 block behind.   This isn't how the blocks will be in the quilt, I was just sticking them up there as I pressed them and I still need to square them up a bit.   I plan to use all scraps so I feel almost like it'll be a free quilt (I like to kid myself).

I love what you can do with scraps! You have such an amazing eye for color.

You are not alone in thinking you are getting a free quilt. I always feel like it is found fabric. Like I needed more fabric found or not.

Naturally I had to check that out. Wonder if I could get caught up soon.

This looks fun. Perhaps I ought to do something like that with my scraps. I keep on trying different things though, and ending up with a few blocks of this and a few blocks of that, never enough to do anything with.

Great idea! I may have to make a few and see how it goes. They are so cute I just may end up with a whole quilt.
