    I just had to rib you about it. Just kidding of Course. I did start a tie quilt a long time ago. I guess I didn't finish it as I had forgotten all about it.

    There is a book named "Memory Quilts in the Making". In the book there is a pattern for an unusual bow tie using mens ties. Most traditional bow ties are pieced flat. This pattern has a raised bow in the middle. It has to do with the way you sew the pcs together.

    There are a lot of necktie quilts out there, and each has its own special qualities. Look around a bit, and one will catch your attention. Have fun

    I really will have to look around like you mentioned. After looking at my ties and the weight, will really have to think long and hard before I start one.
