August Bee Blocks

Our Threadbias Ausbee Queen for August requested some Mini Bow Tie Blocks.

I haven't made these before, so I'm very happy to add them to my repertoire!

The fabrics to be used were cream for the backgrounds (cream prints OK) and for the bow ties themselves she requested bright jewel colours, thirties prints, dot/spot or florals.  I didn't have any thirties prints on hand but the Avant Garden fabric range covered the rest ...

Job done!

Linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday


  1. I thought that was Avant Garden! I've been trying to not want it... love the dotty ties!

  2. I'm not not normally a big polka dot fan but it really works here!

  3. This is such a great line - I hadn't seen it before. It's going to be a stunning quilt if your blocks are any indication!!

  4. I love bow tie's, one of my favourite block patterns. Your fabrics look great.

  5. Great classic blocks with modern vibe!

  6. I saw a quilt's worth of these blocks on the weekend and they looked great as their owner was laying them out. It will be a fun quilt.
