It Can Also Be a Great Memory Quilt!
This fun quilt will be a great gift for a man in your life. While it was designed to be made with cotton quilt fabric, the tie shapes could also be cut from neckties and applied to squares from shirts for a personalized memory quilt.
Bright colors give it a cheerful personality that is sure to be noticed wherever the quilt is displayed. It will be great on a wall or draped over the sofa for use as a lap quilt.
More traditional tie colors will also be great. We played a bit in Photoshop to give you an idea of how that might look.
Simple piecing is used to create the body of the quilt. Fusible applique is used for the ties.
The finished quilt, from Whistler Studios, is 40″ x 40″.
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!
