    That is gorgeous. Are the ties hard to sew in terms of them stretching all over the place?

    I have been 'threatening' to make one of those with the 300+ ties I have saved for years! Beautiful, and thanks for the inspiration. :)

    So Pretty!! I've been wanting to make one for years. I've told all the men at work that I wanted their old ties ... no response ... then I told their wives and now I have several!! You've given me the inspiration to get started!! Thanks!! And Great Job!!

    Have questions regarding making a tie - Will such a quilt be able to be washed as some of the ties can't? What do you think?

    There's a book called Daddy's Ties by Shirly Botsford. It has this and other interesting patterns for ties. I plan (one of my many plans) to make small dresden quilt blocks from my deseased father's ties) frame it, and give one to each of my siblings. I really have to get started on it, this was a good reminder.

    This is an amazing quilt! I have two large bags of ties I've collected and will definitely get this book! I would like to also know if this can be washed - did you wash the ties before making the quilt?

    I had someone ask me just the other day if I could make a quilt out of her deceased husbands ties, this is a beautiful way to use them.

    That is just way cool! It's beautiful. Ties are plentiful and inexpensive at thrift stores and the color and print combination is endless. Thanks for showing this one.
