Have you ever made a Bowtie block? They are so easy to make and there are so many different ways you can use them in a quilt project like this batik Bowtie table topper.

There is nothing better than a “Sadie-approved” quilt project! Builder Bob was gone on a fishing trip so she was stuck with me. I had to take about 20 photos to actually get one of her looking at me!

Here is a collage of just a few of them.

Have you seen the AccuQuilt 10″ QUBE sets? These are so handy and you can make so many different things with the dies. I used the 10″ QUBE Companion Set-Corners to make the Bowtie blocks for this project. 

If you don’t have the AccuQuilt GO! dies, a bowtie block can still be easily made. Stop back tomorrow and I’ll share that with you.

I used some leftover batiks from a quilt I made for Island Batik and it took just minutes to cut all of the pieces for this beautiful table topper!

Look how green the trees and grass are! One month from now the Walnut trees will be bare and the grass will probably be brown. I really like being able to hang my quilted batik Bowtie table topper over the deck rail.

    Hello Connie, I have not made a Bow Tie block, yet, I always stop and look at the quilts that are made with this block. Like you point out there are so many ways to use the block therefore all quilts are so varied. I really like the purplish fabric you chose to make half of your blocks in. Of course, the entire Bow Tie Table Topper is fabulous!! I will pin it in my board of table toppers and then come back and check out all of the quilt projects that you suggest to look at. I always have fun on your blog and in your new newsletter/pattern area! Thank you so much for being such a fabulous giving friend. Your pictures of Sadie are always so adorable. Have a superb day!

  5. Another pretty table topper with a cute dog on top.

  6. Very cute! I’ve done bowtie blocks a couple of different ways. I made a baby quilt with 3-D bowties several years ago and won Best of Show at our county achievement days. And I’ve done the blocks like you have in several different quilts over the years. Love that block because it’s so versatile.
