I recently lost a brother-in-law and had my sister send me his ties. I started out making a quilt in 28 x 28 inch blocks. It was very large. Before sewing the blocks together I asked if she would rather have wall hangings made to share with her children. I made nine wall hangings from his ties with his picture in the middle of each ring of ties. Delivered them last week, and they absolutely loved them. Attaching a picture of what they would have looked like as a quilt just laying them beside each other. One by itself that read Richard's Ties and the date of his birth and death.
