What are you most proud of? The fact that I got it finished! This one was a bit of a trial, but I got through it and the results are lovely.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Even though it takes more time I would open out the neck-ties to reduce bulk. I just sewed these together and the resulting quilt is quite heavy and thick.

I think I used around 60 ties, about 30 inches long. I didn't put any in the corners.

I didn't wash them or take them apart, which would probably make them easier to work with and not as heavy.

I going to take them apart and cut them all the same size and restabilize them with iron on stabilize so thank for everything ---Priscilla
