It’s a Wonderful Memory Quilt, Too!
Men’s ties come together beautifully in this striking wall quilt. It makes a great accent for a man’s office and is perfect for a birthday, Father’s day, Christmas and even as a retirement gift. It also makes a lovely memory quilt that will be treasured for years to come.
Start with sixteen coordinating ties, either from someone you love or the thrift store. Instructions are provided for everything from washing the ties to finishing up the quilt with a hanging sleeve.
Use men’s shirts, or similar prints, for the block backgrounds. Arrange the ties in a pleasing composition and tie everything together with a complementary sashing and borders.
The finished quilt, designed by Anita Bradshaw, is 52″ x 52″.
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!
