Default mens neck tie quilt pattern

HI everyone
I am looking for a easy mens necktie quilt pattern-hope someone out there can be helpful. I had one but have seemed to misplaced it--if anyone has one they would like to share I will pay for it. Thanks.

In the search box on this page put in mens ties. You will see lots of threads with ideas. I think you can use almost any pattern you like. I have made some projects with ties and was taught to use an iron on stablilizer before cutting my shapes. So, considering this I'd say choose a pattern that doesn't have a lot of points coming together at one spot (i.e. star)

I saw some where they were used for a "dresden plate" or something similar to the dresden plate.

I've seen one done with "Tumbling Blocks" and another using a "Grandmother's Fan" pattern.....both were beautiful. I've also seen a tablecloth done with the skinny end of the ties at the center and the wider end at the edge of the round covering. ......very nice; whatever you choose, I'm sure it will be pleasing. Good luck in your search!....and be sure and post your final result.

I recently saw a Dresden Plate style quilt made with men's ties that was stunning. The pattern she used was from a book called "Daddy's Ties". I found this book on Amazon and it appears there are many different patterns along with a lot of prep information,etc.

I am told the prep information is valuable in using ties in quilts.
