Multi-color Bow Ties

April's color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is multi-color... the fabrics that just don't fit into one particular color category.  This week, I had fun digging into my stash to see what might fit that theme and I pulled out -

Apples, bicycles, sewing items, and owls!

Bow tie blocks are so fast and easy to sew up that it only took a few minutes to make these - 


But why stop there?  So I made a few more!


These blocks finish at 6 inches, so it will be awhile before I have enough to make anything, but that doesn't bother me!  I just enjoy making a few whenever I get the chance!


Happy ScrapHappy Saturday!  Check out what all of the other Rainbow Scrap Quilters have been up to, every Saturday over at SoScrappy.
