14th finish for 2022
I didn't make the top, but I am still counting it as a finish for 2022. Yes, the bowtie quilt is done. I bound it with some vintage fabric I had in my stash. One side is 3 inches longer than the other, but that just adds to the charm of this hand pieced quilt. I handed it over to the owner this morning, a woman I work with, and she was thrilled with it. She thinks her great grandmother might have pieced it, but she is not sure. I threw it in the washer and it came out great. The finished size was 74" wide, one side 79" and the other 82". I used off white fabric for the back. The difference in the length from side to side would have been even worse if I hadn't taken off four rows. Those four rows were so skewed that there was no way I could have quilt them.
