Here is my third and final quilt using ties from Eddie's Father who passed away about a year ago.
(12.5" squares on my working in progress wall)
This quilt will be for the Eddie's daugther and the granddaughter.
It is going to be a Krazy Quilt of sorts after seeing a pattern in Fons & Porter magazine.
I started with a piece of muslin about 14" and then cut a triangle piece to start with.
I added another piece down one side.
I continued to add pieces one each side and used a piece of
cloth to press open so the heat didn't ruin the silk ties.
Now I need to decide how to finish this. What color / type sashing should I use. I have used grey in both of the other but they were for men. This is for the granddaughter so I hope to add a bit "girly" to it some how.
Any suggestions and thought are more than welcomed! PLEASE!
I also have many points from the both ends of the ties I can use somehow.
Any ideas on what to do with these??
The small ones remind me of prairie points kinda. I probably have about
twenty or so of the big and the smaller ones.
In case you missed the first two I did, here they are.
This was the first one for Eddie.
This one was the second one for his Brother.
