    What a treasure filled with memories. She is not really gone, she is right there with you as long as you think of her when you see this quilt.

    I've been collecting ties for quite awhile and the ones you showed are the most beautiful I have seen. I love how she did those. Now, I am excited to make one too. Thanks so much for showing the whole thing!!!

    It's absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing these pics. A man from church gave me two trash bags full of ties but I didn't have the slightest idea how to start a quilt. Now maybe I'll be able to put your pics to good use along with the ties.

    Hi, was wondering how your mom pieced the ties-did she remove the lining of the tie? sewed onto muslin with or without the tie lining? Also what does the back of her quilt look like? Material used for backing? Boy, do I have alot of questions! Appreciate your input.

    That is gorgeous. I have a bag full of ties, that would be a wonderful pattern to use.
