when I first started making quilts and selling them (early 1980's), most of the ones for sale were tied. I offered hand quilted so mine were different. Before all the imports came in, people would spend $200 or so for a tied, patchwork quilt, made in VT.

Some people will say tied is a "comforter" not a quilt, but it is just words and if you made it you can call it what you want.

I have tied a few, my problem is, I don't like the looks of the ties on the front, so I put them on the back. Not nearly as easy as having them on the front. I am taking note of that "surgeon's knot" for future reference.
