It has come to my attention that I put the wrong measurement on the squares for the bow ties.  I left my notes down in my sewing room so I went of my memory and that was wrong.  I apologize.  I thank Cathy for bringing it to my attention.  

I wanted to let everyone know as soon as possible.  The squares should be cut 2″ not 2 1/2″.  I hope I haven’t caused too much grief.  That you will still trust my future instructions and continue to play along with the sew in.  Once again I am so sorry. If you  have already made your bow tie blocks and don’t want to bother making more in the correct size.  Then sew the bow ties into 2 rows of 8 and 2 rows of 10 and add to your quilt as instructed before.  Then add a 2 1/2″ border.  I’ll make instructions for both styles next month.  Once again I am so sorry.  I know I should not do instructions when I’m not feeling well (between my toe and the bad cold I received from my visit to instacare.) But I said I would post instructions on the second Friday and wanted to keep my word.  I apologize for the mess this has made and will do everything in my power to correct it.

    That explains why my 10 and 12 bow tie rows were too long. I couldn't figure out what was wrong. So I made it work by using 8 and 10 bow tie rows instead, and by adding a 1" border before them to the top. Actually, I really like how it looks, so all is good. and I have a few bow tie blocks to start a new quilt with or use on the backing. 🙂

    What should the outside measurement be now?

    Your outside measurement should be 36 1/2".
