LOVELY!  Simply lovely.  I've been enjoying the bow-tie pattern for awhile now and I love how you did it on a large scale.  Smiley

Thank you!

Same here -- I saved a bunch of bow tie inspiration before deciding on this design.  I am excited about large scale quilts as a way to showcase lovely large scale prints.

It's a bowtie pattern, very traditional pattern.  It's larger scale than you might find elsewhere though.

Here's a free pattern: http://quilting.about.com/od/quiltpatternsprojects/ig/Free-Quilt-Block-Patterns/Bow-Tie-Quilt-Block.htm

Be careful for directional prints if you want the center bow part to look square rather than two triangles.

Another beautiful job.  I love how you pieced the back - silly me, I think I like it even more than the front!!

Ha Smiley  Thank you!

I'm not satisfied with the back.  I did it somewhat in a hurry because I wanted it finished before our engagement photos were taken.  I do love the fairy fabric though and the quilting pops a lot.

This is just fabulous. I think I've finally found inspiration for a quilt that would be suitably boyish for my partner! Great job!
