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.

I hate it when my posts are rejected!!  I tried to send you some links to some ideas. 

I'll try again with just one link.  I like this quilt for a wallhanging.  I have never made one but a friend wants me to help her do one from her husband's ties.

If you go to GOOGLE Images and search for necktie quilts there are lots of quilts to look at. Here's 2 I liked.

I have tubs of ties from my deceased husband and father that I plan to make quilts from someday. I have a book by Shiley botsford entitled Daddy's Ties, but it has a lot of projects besides quilts in it. There are a few quilts, but more crafty things. These pictures are great, Jeanine and Jacy. gives me some more ideas.

My BIL only wear silk neckties. They are so beautiful. When he tires of one, in the trash. No telling what he pays for them. I asked SIL if I could have his rejects, thinking I would save them up and make a quilt for their little grandson. She never replied to my request. But, she is just that kind, as is BIL..
