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 quilt. I have 60 ties from my late husband and wanted to make this. Since some are different widths how long from tip to circle before you cut? I used tested ties and tried to take out the inside without losing shape. When I did that they didn't retain shape and opened up to a piece of fabric. What did I do wrong?

I would like to know how wide is your bottom on the card board. If you would just make the template that would be great. Thanks for sharing
