A friend of mine made a quilt out of her SIL's father's ties for him to have as a memory quilt of his Dad. She opened up all the ties, cut them into random width strips and then sewed them together in a crazy quilt style. She made lots of blocks and then squared up each block to either a 10 or 12" square and then sewed the blocks together. She used a herringbone looking plaid fabric for a border (she may have sashed it with it too, I cannot remember). She may have a photo of the quilt. I could ask her and have her email it to me, if you are interested. It was really an awesome looking quilt, was easy to make, and looked like a great "guy quilt"
