My Boyfriend’s Neckties Get New Life as a Quilt

tiequilt

Idea: Recycle unused neckties into a beautiful quilt. 

How to: Select your ties, open up the back center seams, press them flat, merrow finish the edges, arrange them on a piece of cloth of your choice (I used velvet), baste them in place (necessary because most ties are cut on the bias which makes the grain shift when sewing them down later), sew them down permanently (I used machine but some traditionalists might want to hand sew). Back the quilt with another fabric (I used a chenille throw), finish edges. 

Quilts are works of art and represent loving hands at home—always great energy and that’s good feng shui!
