Has anyone quilted a piece using men's silk ties? I would like to 3 small wall hangings using my husband's ties. I'm thinking about paper piecing. Any suggestions for working with silk and pattern suggestions?

    I quilt with a group on Wednesday afternoons at our local quilt shop and the one man who quilts with us is using ties. He has been prepping them for weeks now - he takes them apart and presses them. After pressing them he has been using iron on interfacing to stabilize them. Not sure what pattern he is going to use, but he figures a good year to make it from start to finish. I am not sure if he is only working on it on Wednesday's nor not.
