'Tis the season for bow-tie block quilts, and we can't get enough! This project is by Christa Watson of Christa's Quilts, and was originally featured on her site as a quilt-along. She goes into excellent detail in every step, so this is a great project for a beginner. The project is a couple years old, so you may have trouble finding the fabrics she used, but we're sure you'll have fun putting together your own colorway. More from Christa:
"Hugs and Kisses is an updated version of a previous design from 12+ years ago. I made the original quilt in spicy reds, oranges and yellows for my husband who is hot stuff! The newer version in soft pretty pinks (with all x blocks) was made for my sweet daughter.
"If you look closely, it’s similar to the quilt shown on my blog’s header. Over the years I’ve had several requests for this quilt pattern, so I finally decided to make one! I designed this quilt using EQ7 so that it will work with Jelly Rolls or precut strips."
Finished Size: 48" x 64" (122cm x 163cm)
Skill Level: Beginner
