Ooh I am so saving this project, thanks Terry for the great idea. My husband has so many fabulous ties and I would love to make him a quilt with some of them, that is if he lets me have them;)

I have used ties to make many shopping bags, and all very unique! It is amazing the amount of material there is in a tie once you have it taken apart. I always wash them carefully after they are taken apart, so there is no size change once they are sewn. Not all ties are silk :-) Your quilt is lovely!

Did you use a pattern or the string quilting method to make these blocks?

I precut 11.5" squares of muslin as foundation pieces. Drew diagonal line as starting point. Each strip was pre-cut to a specific width. Applied first 2 pieces in similar fashion to paper piecing. Then strip pieced the other pre-cut pieces. The diagonal sewing distorts the square, so final step was to trim the block to 10.5" square using first diagonal line as guide.

Also, each block in the photo is composed of 4 diagonal blocks.
