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! Keep the points of the ties intact. You won't have to do anything to finish them...they are already finished!

Great idea, my dad passed awhile ago. I have a few of his ties. Thank - you for this idea

What size is this quilt, and how long are the tie pieces? It s beautiful. I have collected neckties 3 different times but haven't made the jump to actually use them
