Bow Tie QUilt Blocks

These are some pictures of Bow-Tie quilt blocks that Granny, Mom, and I made. All of these blocks are sewn by hand. These were made with two mens shirts that were thrown out. The shirts had some stains and tears, that is probably why they were thrown out. We cut the shirt into blocks (avoiding the tears and stains that were on them). It is neat that these pretty quilt block were made out of two old shirts. It is a great way to recycle and reuse!
All of these blocks were made in our spare time when we were at a doctor's office waiting or when we were just sitting around doing nothing at all we would pick up up our little pieces and get to sewing!

Here is a picture of the blocks close up.
This is a picture of our hand sewn seams.
I enjoy quilt - making with my Granny ,Mom, and sister. I ecspecially love the quilts that are made with old scrap clothing. I think the prettiest quilts are made with scraps.

Those are really nice!

I think it's great that you did this with your granny and your mom too.
