Recently, while reading magazines with HD at B & N (got that?), I saw a bow tie quilt made by Alex Anderson. I loved it! Until I read the sizes of the pieces. 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" squares. Seriously? Then it occurred to me-the unchanging, unconquerable scrap bin! Yes (insert fist pump)! So I began cutting, a little at a time. I am about 1/4 of the way to what I need, but I really like how it is coming along. I hope you do, too!
