InstructionsBefore I started, I cut open the backs of each tie and laid them out flat. Then I created an expanded Dresden Plate template and cut the ties from that template.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Classic, Traditional, Retro / Vintage
Collected neckties, cotton quilting fabric, quilt batting.
What was your inspiration?
This quilt was made for a friend who had recently lost her father. She had his neckties, but didn't want to give them away or stash them in a closet.
What are you most proud of?
Helping people make the most of their treasured memories. This beautiful keepsake can be used every day, or hung on a wall for everyone to enjoy.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If the ties are different widths, you will need to make them a consistent size before you start sewing. Open the tie backs up...they have a lot of fabric in them!
