Hugs-n-Kisses Quilt ~ July 2017
Finished size 80" x 104".  Except for the "white background & borders" this quilt was made using scraps of colour in a Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I chose to make Bow Tie blocks & then arrange them in alternate hugs (O) & kisses (x) & in a dark & light theme.
Each block finished at 12" square. The borders are 3" white, 3" coloured width then 4" white outside.
I chose white backing & got Julie to use a coloured thread in a "Champagne Swirl" quilting pattern. 
The binding is the same fabric as the backing.
This quilt is for my personal use on a "guest room" queen sized bed.
