    That is really neat! I've always loved the designs in neck ties. You made them into a gorgeous quilt.

    Lovetoquilt-I just love, love, love your quilt!! The border sets it off beautifully. How many different ties did you use? Where did you get them all?

    Beautiful anyway you can post the pattern? The color choices are just so eye catching. Did you use all the ties she gave you? :lol:

    I too love it. The border is especially nice.
    I love scrappy quilts, and repurposed items.

    I usually just use 100% cotton for my quilts but the ties are made of all kinds of fabrics.

    The pattern is from a book by Fons and Porter. "Quick Quilts from the Heart." The pattern itself is called fancy fans. The border on theirs had a scalloped border but I did the braided border so I could use more of the fabric from the ties. Yes I used parts of all the ties. I needed 96 different ties to have a tie on each blade of the fan. I only had 171 ties so I had to used 25 of the ties twice.

    Yes it is really heavy. That is because of all of the thick knit ties. And yes she will get the quilt this morning in Church after a memorial is done for her Husband.
