Bowtie for Baby

I'm clipping along quite nicely on the wedding quilt and I have lots of in-process photos to share later. But those will have to wait, since I want to surprise the bridal couple. At the same time, I started another quilt for a friend's new baby, maybe I just needed a change of color.

I didn't know what color the quilt was going to be when I pulled out my scrap box , but the fabrics spoke to me and I chose reds and cream. Inspired by Finn, I cut squares for Bowtie blocks for two days.

It's been several days since then and I haven't started sewing yet, but I enjoy going in to the sewing room and just admiring the fabric palette. I wonder if the triple digit temperatures this week subconsciously influences my color choice. =D

Thanks for letting me know Leslie, the color choice is wonderful *VBS* I LOVE the red and cream. It should be a very strong quilt I think, as well as happy!
I hope you don't have any tech problems with it. Hollar if you need me. I think it's going to be a great quilt! Hugs, Finn

I am so into red fabric right now. What lovely photos, Leslie.

Great colors and yes, I do think the daily heat had something to do w/your choice!
