    Here are two ideas of quilts made with neckties-the pics are not really clear, but you can get a general idea

    Marcia, great quilts! But not many wear ties anymore, do they? Did you get them at thrift shops?

    I cannot take credit for the quilts. They were made by a friend of mine and she gave me permission to post them. One quilt is made with her FIL's ties-after he retired he said he would never wear one again!! The other was made for her SIL using his father's ties-a memory quilt. I thought they were nice and since necktie quilts come up every now and then on the board I asked her for pics of them to post.
