Tie Quilt Top

I finally decided on a gray to go between the ties for the Tie Quilt.  I put a wine color border to set off the ties and I found a gray wavy stripe to go around the main center piece.  Here are a few pictures of the top.  I hope you approve.




I have to get the back sewn together. I think I will the same gray wave for that.
I considering the wine color the binding but thinking that the same gray
I used between the ties.
For the quilting, I think just a random stippling will work.
This is for an older unmarried man, I think it looks
rather manly.  The ties were his father's, and he past away this time last year.


Thanks for Reading

The grey and wine colors work very well together! You really made this quilt into something to be noted.

I love your tie quilt. I have seen many and I adore your tie setting/placement. This is a new and different idea. Thanks for posting this.

I love the quilt! I also love the sentiment of it, my father passed away two and a half years ago and I have his ties saved in a bag in one of my stash boxes. I have wanted to make something with them as a keepsake but I didn't know what so I love seeing your idea. I don't think I could cut my ties though so I would have to adjust the style a bit. I do say that grey was a great choice as it goes with so many colours.
