I have just taken apart many silk neckties and am wondering what if anything can be done with the inside interfacing and the facing on the pointy ends of the ties. Does anybody have a use for these? Let me know. Sydneyjay
Amazing! I would never have thought about using coordinated prints with different background colors--but the effect is powerful!
Oh my, it's your quilting that stole the show. Truly a work of art! Although, BOTH sides are a work of art.
you could make a wonderful dresden plate quilt, or a crazy quilt. DON'T wash them! they will have to be drycleaned and it's easier, and less expensive to clean as a quilt . excuse my shouting but i wanted to stop you right away!
oh! i'm totally taken by the black and green quilt! would love to see the red one closer, please!
just lovely, I really like the effect. I always enjoy seeing what others come up with, because then I can steal their ideas!
Just beautiful. I love the overall effect you achieved by the placement of the florals. Just love it!!!
I want to make a turkey quilt from them and a different quilt. Would love to have some if friend doesn't want them. Just PM to let me know. Thanks
I love neckties. I made a skirt for our 7 year old grandaughter. As she grows, I have cut it apart and added a necktie. These ties are from my Father in Law.
I take the short end of the tie (cut off a few inches of the wide part) and fold and wrap the tie around to make a flower pin. Put a pin back on and you are set with a nice accent or gift. Then I take the wide part and cut off 4" or so. Then make this the arms, add a wooden head and hair, and you have an angel to hang up.
I am obsessed with ties. I go to the thrift shops and buy them all!!!
i would try all the different ones I own and still I think your hands will get tired,but I seen john flynn on his video use a weed eater outside to fluff up his rag samples , like place mats .I have his quilting frame where you move the quilt and your machine sets still in the middle.I could not get set up right so haven't quilted with it. bignan
