Feedsack Bow Tie Quilt

I was lucky enough to get to work on this lovely, old Bow Tie quilt that my customer, Azalea found. The quilt has many old fabrics in it, and some of them appear to be feedsacks. I wanted to keep the “antique” feel of this quilt, even though it was going to be machine quilted. So I searched on the web and found some bow tie quilts from the 1860’s and looked at how they were quilted. Since they were hand quilted in a mostly linear fashion, I tried to keep with that feeling in my quilting pattern. And I think the results are really fun! Happy quilting!
