This is a quilt I made from my stepfather’s ties. He wore a suit and tie to work every day, and had collected hundreds of ties by the time he retired! Since he doesn’t wear ties anymore, I took some of his favorites and stitched them into a quilt so he can still enjoy some of them.
I based the block on a simple 9 patch design. The ties are made from silk, wool, cotton, and linen. I added wool men’s suiting fabrics to each tie block.
This was a holiday gift, and my stepfather loves the quilt! He proudly displays it on his favorite chair, and can always tell a story about one of his favorite ties in the quilt.

Wow. That quilt is beautiful. I gear more towards quilts that use walking foot, so I love it. Reusing the fabric is a great part of the project.
I have dress/work shirts and pants I don’t wear anymore and would love to make a quilt in that pattern.
Is the pattern available somewhere, free or to purchase? I would love to make a couple for a few guys. Men would love this quilt. Can be rustic or modern, depending on the colors and fabrics of course.
Well, please let me, and the world, know how to make our own. No pressure of course. Haha.
Can’t wait to see more of your work.
