    I'm also collecting ties for a quilt and basically you either follow a pattern that you might already have and cut them up or there are books on amazon, etc. that can be purchased.

    Is there a particular pattern that you are looking for?

    If you do a Google search, I think there are some free instruction out there.

    There are also a couple books:

    Daddy's Ties can be found on Amazon.com

    I have the one below to sell but it is a bit pricey as it is out of print & not easily obtainable.

    Ties Ties Ties; Traditional Quilts From Neckties by Janet B. Elwin; American Quilter’s 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

    Thanks to you wonderful ladies for your quick replies,as I just joined this group today!! A home decor magazine came today. In it was a 'Sun Mirror', with the sun rays curved around the mirror in the middle. So--- I have now placed several ties around a bowl on the floor to get the effect and play with this idea. I plan to applique these on to a background to make a wall hanging for above my couch.
    That's my latest.
    Thanks again!
