Bowtie Quilt

You might remember a Bowtie block tutorial I posted here last week. Did you download the free instruction sheet from Craftsy? Well, now I have a finished quilt for my friend Rebecca's baby, Gabe.
Fabrics include Science Fair Formulas by Robert Kaufman, Elementary and Road 15 by Sweetwater for Moda, Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House, Moda's Grunge, Sunprints by Alison Glass and Riley Blake's Rocket Blast from the Rocket Age collection, among others.
I popped on my walking foot, set my stitch to a wide, elongated zig zag, and headed diagonally across the quilt quite a few times. I'm pleased with the result, but wish I could have made the stitch length a little longer without making the stitches overly huge.
Just a reminder: Enter my awesome giveaway before you leave.
