THE FAMOUS "NECKTIE QUILT"


I spent the whole winter making this quilt. Patti brought in a bagful of neckties and asked for a cutom-made queen-sized quilt using the neckties. I dumped the ties on my workbench and looked at them, moved them around, looked at them some more......no idea what to do with them.

Took them home, counted them, moved them around, looked some more.......finally after about 2 months, hand appliqued the ties to background squares.

Had to buy fabrics, but didn't quite know how to match fabric to the ties because all the ties were different colors and styles. So I bought the fabrics to match each other and didn't worry about matching the ties. It is certainly a one of a kind quilt.

There will never be another quilt like this one....past, present or future...........

It truly is a one of a kind. Henny Penny's always has beautiful gifts and wonderful teas. I enjoy visiting ths store whenever I can. This is truly an experience. I enjoy the herb shop - it reminds me of a store from Harry Potter.
