The Tie Quilt

I haven’t forgotten this project….though I have tried. Every now and then, it yells at me from under a pile of stuff in the sewing room.

I liked where this was headed, but I knew if I didn’t get every piece perfectly placed, that it would look all wrong. I finally decided to put it back on the design wall and play some more.

Still playing with this, but I think I might be getting somewhere.

Btw, I used these dies from Accuquilt to cut my leaves. What a time saver!

Have a great day!

    What a fun project. Once you lay out the pieces are you going to hand applique? This is a great idea for using ties.

    I like the spray style arrangement. We saw a quilt at a recent show made of someone’s grandfather’s Italian silk ties, They made blocks that looked like shirts with ties.

  8. Oh, I like where you are going with this, Katy! Keep playing!

    I DO see progress! Glad you went back ‘to the wall’…like the looseness of the last one utilizing all of your space. Susan
