    Shirt & Tie wallhanging

    I made this for my DH for Father's Day. I used his Dad's shirts for the shirts, and my fabric scraps for the ties. The pattern is from Fons and Porter book called Quilts from the Heart. I am just learning to digitize, so I digitized the block.

    Wow, great job. I like it. Never thought of making a tie out of fabric.
