I spent the entire day today trying to find a book I have to show how to make a quilt out of ties. The one I want looks like a sun with a circle in the center and the ties radiating from the circle looking like the rays. Does anyone have this pattern?

I have 2 books that use men's ties. PM if interested. I accept money orders, Paypal, or checks.

Ties Ties Ties; Traditional Quilts From Neckties by Janet B. Elwin; American Quilter\u0092s Society; 1996, 152p. Just as quilting ancestors recycled many materials to use in quilts, Janet B. Elwin uses ties. Not only does she share the history of these quilts, but she provides wonderful patterns and color pictures of her tie quilts as well as those she has viewed across the country. The projects range from small wallhangings to large bed quilts. Some suggest specific necktie colors, patterns, and fiber content to use while making these creative quilts. Quilters can adapt the innovative suggestions in this book to create their own designs. (used-minor shelf wear to cover & previous owners name written on 1st page) $29.00
