Has anyone done a quilt using mens neck ties? Do you know of any patterns or info for this? Thank you. Have a friend who has their deceased brothers ties and wants a quilt/wall hanging.
Thanks for the thumbs up on my bag and vest. They are made from all silk ties and from the thrift store. I still have about 70 or eighty to use up but, not all of the left overs are all silk.
I really like the second quilt using the ties! I have all of my deceased dad's ties that I'd like to make into a quilt, some day. I'll have to google to find these. Thanks for the heads up.

Jeannine, I like both of these too! So many decisions to make now! LOL! They both look easy to make, all it takes now is time.
One of the magazines I received just a few months ago had a wonderful pattern. I will see if I can find it and give you the issue/name, etc. What a wonderful idea!
Joan I can't believe these were made with neck ties.... Beautiful! You are so talented.
Joan L.:Debbie, I haven't made a quilt but, have made a bag and a vest.
Thank you to all that responded. Such wonderful ideas. This web site is the greatest, so glad I discovered it. My next project is gonna be silk tie I think. (After Harry, Scrappy, and my sons Nascar.)
Found it. Finally! The Quilter's World issue December 2011 had a cover and a pattern for neckties. :) Hope this helps.
