    I finally finished the quilt made of ties for my friend

    I posted about making this quilt over a year ago. It is made from the ties my friend's late husband wore to work. He was a grade school principal. I had no idea what I was doing, but all the links and ideas from the board helped me through this. I think I have attached the photo, let's see!

    Your quilt looks very nice. Ties can be a pain to sew with, they are so slippery.

    Very nice! How large is it? A friend talked to me about making a quilt from her deceased husband's ties, but she only has 12-14. I wondered if I could cut them in half and use both ends in a Dresden design.
