Some of the prints are 1930's reproduction prints but mostly they are small florals. I vaguely remember when we learned how to make this variation of the Bow Tie pattern. Mom took off with it and I never made more than my sample block. As pictured, the quilt top is long and narrow. This is because a fairly wide strip was taken off. The pattern and fabrics are appropriate for a boy or girl. I may add a narrow border in white or a solid pastel.

I'm thinking of making matching crib pillows (for propping baby up) and possibly a table runner for us from the strip that was removed. The quilts would be from Great and Great-Great Grandmas. I taught Mom to quilt when she was in her 60's. She loved to hand quilt and made perfectly even stitches that always amazed me. You never quit missing your Mom.....
