Would anyone like to share a pic of a necktie quilt you've made? I bought some hilarious ties from the thrift shop for $1 each and would like to make a quilt. Thanks:)

I made oneyears ago. I cannot find the pic but I tell you what I had one heck of time with that thing. Most of them were a silky fabric and I had to use tissue paper to sew them without slipage. It turned out beautiful but it was a pain! good luck.

I started one too. It is in a drawer someplace. I hate working with them, they are way to slippery..

Go to the top of the page to the SEARCH feature and put in TIE/necktie quilts and I'm sure some pics will come up. There's several members on here that have done them. Good luck with yours and make sure you post your pic so we can all see it!!

Now we have a walking foot that takes care of most of the slipage problem.
However, before I had one I hand basted slippery fabrics before sewing them together.

ADVICE..... careful in washing the ties. What a mess! I have 3 large bags of silk and poly ties that I intended to use in making a scrappy quilt. They smelled musty so I washed them. Oh what a tangled mess we weave .... And some frayed horribly.

I then started dismantling them and ironing them. I do intend on still using them for a scrappy quilt, but I really recommend stitching them to muslin first (or to a fusible interfacing), then piecing them, then washing them.

The tangled mess wasn't so bad, kind of like a puzzle. But the fraying was concerning.

This is not mine but it's a favorite. I hope to finish mine someday! It just needs the border, quilting and binding.
