Brown's Bow Tie


This is the newest barn quilt on the McDowell County Quilt Trail and one that I thought was a Dresden plate pattern. See how much I know; it is called Bow Tie.

Here is a longer blog post describing how this barn quilt block came into being:

Well now it took me a while but I can now see why it might be called that. Better, to my eyes, than the last one anyway.

Fantastic barn quilt image! I really love the contrast of the weathered gray wood with the brightly colored bow ties.

Never mind the quilt, I want the tumble-down barn!!

Toffeeapple: I can see the bow ties, too, but it wasn't after I read the blog post. I still say Dresden plate even knowing I'm wrong.

Diane: It is a real eye catcher from the road.

Anne: I'd love to pack it up and send it to you. How would Malcolm feel about it in your back garden?
