Bow Tie blocks

     Here is the short tutorial on the Stitch and Flip method of making these bow tie blocks.  Sure beats inset seams.  For each block, you will need (2) 2.5 inch white squares,  (2) 2.5 inch print squares and (2) 1.5 inch print squares.

For each block, draw a diagonal line across the 1.5 inch print squares, place, right sides together, in one corner of a white 2.5 inch white square and sew along the diagonal line.  

Trim away the corner, leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Flip it open and press.

Repeat with the other white square and arrange with the 2.5 inch print squares into the bow tie block. 

The blocks can be arranged several different ways.  Just play around with them.  
Here is a crib quilt done with charm squares and 2.5 inch squares on the corners.
Here is another arrangement in a baby quilt.  These were both charity quilts and really sewed up fast.

Its snowing in Missouri today, so I plan to bake some scones, then spend the rest of the day in the sewing room.   
Keep on stitchin'
