Pattern Premiere: Beau's Ties!

If you follow Honey, Bunny, and Doll designs on Facebook, you would have noticed that I've posted a few sneak peeks of a pattern I've been working on this summer. Today I finally get to share Beau's Ties with you! I've been anxiously anticipating the final version being ready for publication so I can finally share this as a finished quilt!

I love classic quilt blocks and what I love even more is putting a new twist on a classic block!

Each block in this pattern is composed of one large bowtie and two smaller bowties nestled together! While it might look complicated, the basic skills needed for this block are as follows: half-square triangles, stitch and flip corners, and making four patches. If you're a confident beginner, this is a great option for you!

I made my quilt with fabrics from the Crazy Daisy line of fabric and used black Kona as the background fabric. The binding and backing are the same fabric also from the Crazy Daisy line. I quilted it with all over loop-de-loops in black thread.

This pattern can be found on Etsy! We can't wait to see YOUR versions of this quilt, so don't forget to share them on Craftsy and on the HBD Flickr group!
