I thought I would share aa few quilts I did for a friend using his fathers neck ties. Apparently he wore them all the time and he had plenty! There were one of the few things my friend kept upon his death. I ended up creating three different quilts.
The first on was for him and his wife. I actually used the entire tie as it was. I was going for the fan pattern. I do the quilting at my local quilt shop using their long arm.
This was the third quilt I did for his daughter. I did a crazy quilt pattern using up all the left over bits and pieces from all the ties. You can see on the sides I use the small ends and large ends of the points.
This was the second quilt I did for and it was for his brother who was a single guy. So I really wanted something that looked more manly than most quilts!
You can see I just cut strips in different widths from the ties. I was really pleased with this one.
