Bow Tie Quilt


Here's a simple quilt I put together with only a couple shapes.  I really like quilts with a white background and the simplicity of this one is refreshing - probably because I live in a tiny, dark Manhattan apartment and need all the help I can get when it comes to brightness . The top and bottom binding, done in pepper, adds another simple detail that I'll consider doing in the future.


The back is always a great opportunity to use up scraps and keep it loose. I like the option of having a side that's more freeform to contrast the precise geometrics.  And of course, my usual whip stitch of the binding closure screams handmade.
