Bow Tie Quilt Block in Christmas Colors

I have been baking Christmas cookies today. My mom wrote a cookbook many years ago with the most excellent sugar cookie recipe. It is the family favorite! The Bow Tie block has been available in MyWebQuilter .com for some time. Because I am in the Christmas spirit, I just recolored it in Christmas colors. The Bow Tie quilt block pattern can be found here . This is an example Bow Tie quilt in the Christmas colors. I have to go put icing on those sugar cookies... Happy quilting! Amber
