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!

I love this. I have my grandfather's ties. This would be a wonderful way to remember him.

If they are your grandfather's ties, you will also get a wonderful history lesson on trends in men's fashion! I did a tie quilt with ties from 1920 through was quite a range of styles!

Where can I get the Easy Dresden ruler at ? I have never seen one like the one in the picture.

I made it myself! I took a regular Dresden ruler and then extended it to get the length I needed. It measures 16" on the center line from bottom to top. The jst followed the angle of the ruler to make the extension.

I was going to make a skirt out of ties for my granddaughter but deconstructing them to use was a problem. Do you have any suggestions that makes it easier?
