I don't think that a man needs to wear a tie to be well-dressed - but sometimes a well-dressed man wears a tie. And sometimes that tie is a bow tie.
I made this little block quilt for Challenge 5 of Project QUILTING over at Kim Lapacek's Persimmon Dreams. Overall size is six inches square. The body is some suiting fabric I found in the stash. And if you're going to do a bow tie, it might as well be paisley!
I'm sure people already do this - but when I was fiddling with a folded square to make sure I'd have the right size triangle for the knot of the bow tie, I discovered that I could just fold it and sew it in! It gives the bow tie a little bit of dimension.
