It has come to my attention that I put the wrong measurement on the squares for the bow ties.  I left my notes down in my sewing room so I went of my memory and that was wrong.  I apologize.  I thank Cathy for bringing it to my attention.  
I wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible.  The squares should be cut 2" not 2 1/2".  I hope I haven't caused too much grief.  That you will still trust my future instructions and continue to play along with the sew in.  Once again I am so sorry.

If you  have already made your bow tie blocks and don't want to bother making more in the correct size.  Then sew the bow ties into 2 rows of 8 and 2 rows of 10 and add to your quilt as instructed before.  Then add a 2 1/2" border.  I'll make instructions for both styles next month.  Once again I am so sorry.  I know I should not do instructions when I'm not feeling well (between my toe and the bad cold I received from my visit to instacare.) But I said I would post instructions on the second Friday and wanted to keep my word.  I apologize for the mess this has made and will do everything in my power to correct it.


  1. That explains why my 10 and 12 bow tie rows were too long. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. So I made it work by using 8 and 10 bow tie rows instead, and by adding a 1" border before them to the top. Actually, I really like how it looks, so all is good. and I have a few bow tie blocks to start a new quilt with or use on the backing. :)

  2. What should the outside measurement be now?

  3. congratulations - now you know for sure that you are human !!
