Featured Quilt - The "Ties" That Bind

As we've said many times before, a quilt doesn't have to be made out of cotton fabric to be a great quilt. For example, Patrice Denault made her quilt, Tom's Ties, out of, what else, ties! Winning Best Longarm Machine Workmanship - Traditional at the 2021 Spring Quilt Festival, Patrice says, "Tom asked if I would make a quilt with his carefully curated collection of ties from his days spent working in Boston. A small wall quilt would not do! I truly enjoyed the process of arranging all the beautiful silks into a quilt for him."

Interested in making a tie quilt? Alex will show you how in How to Use Natural Dyes and Hand Piecing with Youngmin Lee | Silk Tie Quilts with Alex Anderson.
