What materials did you use? I used my grandpa's ties and made a wall hanging for my grandma to remember him by. I also made three small blocks for each one of their children. Heavy upholstery fabric was used for the blocks and corduroy around the edges.

What are you most proud of? That I could give this to my grandmother.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes time to take all the interfacing out. Get a few good movies and enjoy.
