With a little time and a charm pack you have lying around, you can easily assemble and sew this Basic Bow Tie Quilt Block together. The bow tie quilt block originated around the turn of the 20th century, which means it looks great with some vintage print fabric or even modern print fabric. For each 9 inch block, you'll need three 5 inch colored squares and two 5 inch neutral or background fabric squares. To make a whole quilt out of these blocks, you could even reverse the color pattern for a truly unique bow tie quilt pattern.
