Faux Ties

Bow Tie quilts are simply beautiful...but not that simple to make:) The traditional way to make them involves templates and trying to line up and sew a weird edge. Maybe it's just me, but I've always avoided them.

After playing around with the block, I figured out an easy way to make it. I give you Faux Ties - a free tutorial with my version of an easy Bow Tie Quilt Block. Doctor Who was right - Bow Ties are cool.


  1. Nice! I'll have to take a look :)

  2. I was just cruising around internet and found your site. Your little sun quilt looks like it will fun and cute.

  3. April, the link to your faux bow tie tute does not work. at least for me. i get an error code. And I did SO want to learn... can you fix it?
