This is a 6 inch bow-tie quilt (66 X 96). I organized the first of many exchanges with the Baytown Quilt Guild with this block; the blocks were due May 18, 1989 and then I put this together pretty quickly. We had just painted the trim in one of our bedrooms turquoise and I was trying to get a turquoise quilt. I put one of the few turquoise fabrics I found on the back and bound it so that only the front has a visible binding since the calico didn't go very well with the turquoise. It is reversible;
although I never put it on the bed upside down. It has gotten well used in the last 19 years and has 2 fabrics that are falling apart so it needs to be mended BUT I haven't finished quilting it yet! Some of the blocks around the edge were not quilted...so When will it get FINISHED?... I don't count it finished until it has a label.....
