    Hello Everyone,

    I have completed the 1st of 3 quilts using my father's neckties. This one that I completed this weekend is for my mother. I am making one for my sister and one for myself.

    What do you think of it?

    I love this. So nice to have something of your dad's incorporated into something you love & can be reminded of him everytime you see it. Great job!

    That is absolutly lovely!!!! I bet you can remember him wearing some of those.

    I wish I had saved my father's ties, but he died in 1980, way before I started quilting. Who knew?

    What a beautiful tribute to your Dad.

    My Dad probably never wore a tie more than three or four times in his 87 years of life. He wore overalls except maybe to a funeral or something.
