3D Bowties Twilt

This happy little Twilt isn’t a Cathedral Window but surprisingly everything I do, relating to Cathedral Window quilting, is based on this block. The 3D Bowtie has been around for many years.

I used bright batiks and miniature asian prints to make the twelve blocks. Each block uses five squares exactly the same size, three from one print and two from the other. The center square is folded and stitched into the sames of the four patch. When pulled flat you have a three dimensional bowtie knot. It goes together in the same manner as the 3D Spool Twilt.
