This block makes me laugh every time I see it. Two of my bows are pointing in the wrong direction, and I didn’t notice at all until I sat down to quilt the block! I remember carefully arranging them, too, thinking I was doing it correctly. Hah! Funny how you can just not notice something even when you are looking right at it.
When I quilted it, I left the bows alone and simply quilted swirls in the background. I stitched in the ditch around the edge of the block and that was it!
Bows is block 70 of the Splendid Sampler and was designed by Jane Davidson.
