Ties That Bind pattern by Due North Designs uses old ties in a "bow tie" pattern.
I have a basket of striped dress shirts from a friend who took early retirement from teaching high school (surprise) and have been wondering how to make them into a quilt. I found this quilt idea there . I think it looks great with the centres a solid fabric. This will be one of my UFO projects for this year. He has only been retired for 3 years - when did he expect to get the quilt - for a retirement present - yeah right!!!
Hope everyone has a great day and think about what you can make into a upcycled quilt. Doesn't upcycled sound so much classier than recycled. Recycled always reminds me of water bottles and tin cans.
