Juliann's blog post where she wanted to reproduce a Cheddar Bow Tie quilt that she saw during the Sisters Quilt Show. She did start it but with a nice twist. Really like her version of applique for the centre square. Juliann shared the measurements with me i.e. the centre square is 3/4" finished and cut at 1 1/4". The 4 patches are 2" cut. I am using a remnant piece of Kona Solid Amber for my cheddar from Cheddar Cheese & Crackers Quilt. There's a tutorial by Bonnie Hunter on how to do a pieced version of the Bow Tie block.
I like the use of silk thread to applique. It's my first attempt and I find the actual thread could be a little fiddly but the results are lovely. Now to get some basic colours to play with :)

This-N-That Fabric's recent sales arrived mid week. Now in the process of being washed. The days are cooler here and it's been raining. But this morning as I write this, the weather looks promisingly sunny.
