These vintage bow tie blocks were hand pieced. Dorry supplied the blue on black fabric I used as a background for this photo. We were to use it on the face of the 24 inch square quilt. (If you don't click on the photo, you will probably not be able to see the blue.)
Dorry calls this chapter "Tuxedo Rental." I thought about doing something with a stylized tuxedo cat. I've enjoyed the company of several, starting with the fabulous mouser Rau (who was also a great music lover) - the family cat from my grade school and high school years. When I actually put the design on paper, I came up with something completely different. I'll post a photo when I finish the hand sewing and get all the lines I used for quilting washed out.
