    Very nice use of ties. It almost looks like a modern art piece. I have a tie quilt on my bucket list. Maybe someday I'll get to it.

    Great job on the pillows! I would be interested in knowing how you worked with the ties as I have an acquaintance who wants me to make her something with her dad's ties. She wants six lap quilts!!! I don't think so. Anyway, wondered if you took these apart, washed them somehow, cut them up, backed them or not, sewed larger seams that 1/4 inch, and anything else you can think of that would help. Thanks.

    Interesting pillows, I have scads of tie's, think I'll try a pillow too, rather than a large quilt. Like yours a lot.
