What materials did you use? This quilt was made from a selection of silk ties I purchased while on holiday in Switzerland. I backed the washed and unpicked ties with interfacing and used quilting cotton in the blocks as well to stabilise............

Gorgeous! thanks for the tips about the ties...someone has asked me to make a memory quilt for them and they are sending ties which was making me nervous. Now I have something to go on :)

Thankyou, I think it turned out nice, I am pleased with it. Something different. It did make it easier and square alternating with cotton fabric. Good luck with yours, would love to see it when you've finished it. Hugs Jac
