A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
Today’s finished quilt.
I do use neckties for quilts. I have bunches and bunches of them! Given to me by the fabric fairies at one time or another. The only reason I haven’t used neckties lately is because they weren’t prepared for use. Opening ties and pressing them takes LOTS of time. I’ve gotten myself into the habit of opening and pressing a few each time I use the pressing machine so it doesn’t become a long boring task.
I think the next necktie quilt will be a 9 patch quilt. Or maybe another spiderweb quilt. Ooo, maybe a dresdan plate quilt. I’ve been wanting to make another one of those. Wouldn’t it look nice made from neckties? Hmm…what background? Maybe I can use the shirt sleeve parts I have stashed away. Yes, I do think it will be those. After all shirts and ties go together when worn, why not in a quilt together.
But……that’s for a future project. I’ll make myself a note in my to do list. It will probably become a quilt kit when I start making those after Christmas.
