All Tied Up!

Earlier this week my husband came home from work and asked if I could make quilts from ties.  I reminded him of the little quilt that I had made from ties for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative a couple of years ago and told him that I had some ties leftover for another quilt one day.  That's when he handed me a box and said that he had a few more for my collection.  One of his friends is cleaning out in preparation for a move and thought that I might like to have them.  I haven't counted them, but I can tell you that the box weighs 7 pounds!  That's a lot of ties!

Wow - those will make a huge quilt! I made a bunch of quilt blocks from ties many years ago, and they're still in a basket waiting to be sewn together into a quilt. I bet you get your quilt done before I do mine! Can't wait to see what you do with them...

You shouldn't be short of ties, what a stash. My Dd made a skating skirt from ties so there's a lot of ways to recycle them.

Ties are always such interesting designs too. I have some around here somewhere too.
