My husband died Jan 19, 2013 just a month ago. I want to preserve him in the memories for my two daughters. "Neck Tie" Quilt would make a great memorial. Is there a pattern or do I just follow the Dresden Plate Template and circle?
I love what you did with the Tie's nice job!
The person that made this quilt gave this info:
'The pattern is from a book by Fons and Porter. "Quick Quilts from the Heart." The pattern itself is called fancy fans. The border on theirs had a scalloped border but I did the braided border so I could use more of the fabric from the ties.'
I found the book on Amazon and made the quilt. The picture in the book is no where near as nice as hers!
I don't usually like the tie quilts much, but this is beautiful!
