Scrappy Bow-Tie Quilt Finish

I participated in the Scrappy Bow-Tie block swap over on flickr this spring.  It was a fun, new adventrue to participate in a block swap.  Although the quality of what I received was sometimes disappointing, I was glad to be involved in the social experience of swapping blocks and then the exercise of making them all work together.
I decided to sort them by color in groups of 4 to create a larger block . . .
and then distributed the blocks to balance color and value.
This was destined for a talent auction at our family reunion, so I used a striped sheet for the backing and binding.

I free-motion stippled the entire quilt . . . a quick quilting finish.
And a signature to claim it as mine.

Fabric: assorted scraps, twin-size flat sheet for back and binding
Pattern: Scrappy Bow-Tie
Finished Size: about 60" x 60"
