A Memory Quilt Made From Ties |
A Super Simple Quilt to Make!
This memory quilt is made of woven neckties and will be perfect for showcasing the favorite ties of that man in your life. It will be a great gift for Father’s Day, his Birthday or at Christmas.
It’s also a wonderful way to honor the memory of your Dad, Grandfather or another favorite man who has moved on.
Tie Quilt by Grantham Lynn.
A version by Renay Martin shows how the quilt is put together. The ties are woven together and hand stitched in place. Here’s a picture of the back before it was lined.
She used 56 ties to create a 35″ x 45″ quilt and lined it with silk (there doesn’t appear to be any batting).
Update: A pattern is now available from Purse Strings. You’ll find the pattern here and can order it using the information here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
