39 Blocks Before Baby: Week Seven

Just one block to add to the sampler this week - I unfortunately didn't get quite as much sewing time as I would have liked, but I can always try to make up for it next week! This week's additional block is the Bowtie Mania block.

Bowtie Mania
This simple half-square triangle based block absolutely makes me think of Batman and the Bat-Signal. It almost looks like it could be the Bat-Mobile or something like that, in quilt-form. I went with a medium blue sketch print for the background, and created both light yellow and dark yellow/gold half-square triangles to set around the block. There's a touch of navy in the center with the gold, to give the block a bit more depth. I'm really liking how this one works with the others I've made thus far, which I gathered for a lovely group photo...

Fifteen blocks down, another twenty-four to go! Have a great week everyone!

  1. I love your choice of colors! And go easy on yourself--one block is one more than I made last week :)


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)

Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
