Raggedy Bows
Topic: Quilting

This is my 20th quilt for the hospital Passages program!

It was inspired by a video from the Missouri Star Quilt Company (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyZu-j720nw) with a guest from Kansas Troubles. This was from their new book called Loose Change.

It uses one 'layer cake' and one 'charm pack' and takes advantage of the fact that these precuts have pinked edges. I used a marbled layer cake (10 inch squares) and a charm pack (5 inch squares) from Kansas Troubles called Sweet Pea.

The process is to center a charm on a contrasting layer cake with BOTH pieces right sides up. Then the edges of the charm are stitched down 1/8 inch from its edges. Then the pieces are cut through into quarters and arranged pleasingly. This created enough squares to make two lap quilts. I added a border of yardage from Kansas Troubles.

On this quilt I arranged the squares so the little surface blocks formed bows.

For the quilting I did free-motion double loops inside the bows.

I used the border material to create the binding.
