  1. Hundreds of old neckties... Are they any good for small quilts? for men?

    A few have famous names on them, but I don't expect they're worth anything now..

    Suggestions?

    I’m pretty sure this is one my mother made although I can see it was made of a pooled collection of scraps because some of them are from my stash. The block pattern was a block of the month challenge which I think I might have set for our quilting group. As I recognise all the fabrics in the quilt as a collection of “yours and mine” this must have been a joint effort for mum and me rather than of the group as a whole.
