Domestic Bliss Bowtie Quilt


My Domestic Bliss quilt is finally finished! It would have been done a long time ago were it not for the fact that I put off the basting part as long as possible. It's the part I dread the most. Once I got around to it though, it actually wasn't that bad. I love this pretty quilt! It just screams summer picnics, don't you think? This marks my second completed quilt, I'm so proud of myself. Brace yourself for many, many photos!






This quilt was inspired by Angela's Habitat quilt. I made this one a lap sized quilt using 6" blocks. I wanted minimal quilting for a soft finish so I simply echo quilted around the octagons.








(Modeled by my little niece)
