Make a Memory Quilt from Ties |
Also a Great Use of Colorful Thrift Shop Ties!
Neck ties arranged in a Dresden Plate form the center of this impressive medallion quilt. The center star is 42″ across and will have a big impact wherever you display the quilt.
This is a wonderful pattern for making a beautiful memory quilt from a loved one’s ties. The family will be touched by and cherish the resulting quilt for years to come.
Or, find colorful ties at the thrift shop. The finished quilt will be a great gift for a man in your life, whether it’s for Father’s Day, a Birthday or Christmas.

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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
