Vintage Bowtie Quilt

I purchased this bowtie quilt top at a flea market in Mountain Home, Arkansas last year. It was machine pieced from fabrics over a couple of decades from what I can determine. It looks like 30's & 40's fabrics and maybe some newer fabrics as well. I kept the quilting simple with outlining the bowties and quilting a spin feather in the negative spaces. I think that gave the quilt a lot of motion.

It's all trimmed and squared up, ready for binding. I just have to choose the binding fabric and get started stitching.
