    I collected 66 vintage mens ties. Cut the blocks out for the Bowtie blocks and the piano key border, selected the the bachground material, and then, a friend here on this message board did her magic on them and turnned then into a beautiful quilt. I had to show it off she did a great job putting it together and quilting it. I love it and will use it on my bed. Thanks Georgia you are the best friend to do this.

    What a wonderful combination! Men's ties can be so beautiful. I've often wished I had something to do with all of the patterns and colors.

    Love it! I keep thinking of collecting ties plus using my hubby's old ones - you're inspiring me. I love morning glories, & the quilting looks like my favorite flower.
