Amy's Creative Side is holding her 4th quilt festival for all of us to enjoy. This is my first time to join. (I was a few days early and my previous post would not work so I deleted it.) Go to her site and enjoy all the bloggers' quilts!
The quilt I have chosen to show is a quilt made from men's ties.
The pattern was very easy and no seams were suppose to match because different widths of ties were used, using a specific number of strips in each block.
The pink fabric was from a dress of mine that I had worn twice several years before and still hanging in the closet. (Tell me some of you save those old outfits too!) The quilting was done by a longarmer (also a friend) who did a fantastic job.
After making this, I made the decision that I prefer working with cotton fabric and not the ties. BUT, I enjoy trying new things--you just never know what you WILL like!
