Necktie Quilt

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Neckties
  • Sheet for background and backing
  • binding thread

Q&A with Pamela Boatright

I would like the pattern. I have several ties from an entire family from Great Grandfather to most recent male member. I thought would make a wonderful memory gift for the family
Pamela Boatright answered:
Sorry, there isn't a pattern - this was one of those "fly by the seat of your pants" projects :)
Mari Rohde Keefe asked:
Love this it is so beautiful..going to give it a shot. Can you tell me how many neckties you used?
Pamela Boatright answered:
I don't remember - I think it was around 60?
smaxwell05116241 asked:
Where do I find the pattern?
Pamela Boatright answered:
No pattern, I just sewed the ties into a circle!
PRISDAN195126072 asked:
how many tie did you use---did you put any at the 4 corner love this style of quilt thank
Pamela Boatright answered:
I think I used around 60 ties, about 30 inches long. I didn't put any in the corners.
PRISDAN195126072 asked:
thank you so mush --I get back with you when I get working on it
Pamela Boatright answered:
I didn't wash them or take them apart, which would probably make them easier to work with and not as heavy.
