I made 80 orange bow ties for April's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
And I loosely mapped out a plan for this quilt. I'll make (48) 8" finished blocks and use a 6 across/8 down block layout. Each block will be made up of (16) 2" finished bow ties. So I'll need 768 scrappy bow ties. The RSC16 posts a new color each month for 10 months (the last two months are reserved to sew the blocks together and quilt and bind). I'll need to make 80 (or fewer) of each monthly color.
What a fantastic way to make me sort through bins of scraps, using up little pieces and cutting and/or sorting fabrics.
Now I just need to get the previous 3 months caught up! It should go pretty quickly, though. These little bow ties are unbelievably fast to sew together.
Yesterday, I got the purple squares cut out. :)
