    Could anyone give me some pointers. I have a bunch of old mens ties that I have washed and I'm ready to make a quilt or SOMETHING. Anyone have any ideas.

    I have a whole box of them, plan on making clothing too and managed to get hold of a book (or 2), the title/s of which elude me at the moment as does the location. Would love to see your progress. Cheers, cb

    Thanks for the sights. I went to quilbug.com and already have some great ideas. It's a great sight. Will check on the others.I will keep you updated. I'm going to head to Jo Anns fabric on the 16th when they have the interfacing on for 1/2 price so I can back them if I decide to do that. I love the crazy patch idea but who knows what I will decide on. Several ideas maybe.

    Point taken. Gave me a chuckle!!!!!!!!
    Some came from the early 70's and worn by a young man in his 20's to my dad who was 89 and was worn this past year.
