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!

Absolutley love the idea. My husband is a retired school teacher and has so many ties that were given to him by his students, would love to make a memory quilt for him. Anyone know where I can get the pattern? mckillopnancy@yahoo.com - thank you!

DO YOU HAVE TO WASH ALL QUILTING FABRIC BEFORE MAKING QUILT?

I haven't been on Craftsy for a while, so I apologize for not responding to your questions. Since there have been so many questions about a pattern, I may have to create one! I am not good at following patterns, I'm more of a hands-on learner (making lots of mistakes along the way!). I will let you all know once the pattern is created. Thanks for all the kind comments. If you want me to make a tie quilt for you, please let me know. My Facebook page, "Memory Quilts by Bobbi Spain" is a good place to leave me messages! Happy quilting! Bobbi
