Quilt With Us

I was commissioned to make a wallhanging out of ties by a woman whose father passed away in April just shy of his 93rd birthday.  This was my 1st time doing this so there was definitely a learning curve, but I'm happy with how it turned out.  I will be giving it back to her on Friday.

Wow, you did a great job! I can just hear her repeating how much she liked it. I bet she was in awe, especially if she had no idea what you would be doing. 

Did you have to put any kind of backing on the ties before working with them?

Wonderful job! There is nothing more tension provoking to me than working on someone else's dream project.

Thanks Pam.  She kept repeating to me how much she loved it, which sure made me feel good as well as relieved.

Very nice...she will cherish it. Great job!

Thanks PQ & Barb.  I really like the looks of echo quilting & plan on doing more of it.

A job well done!  What a wonderful keepsake.  You sure did a great job with the quilting.

I love this, Janet.  What a perfect way to preserve memories for her in such a nice keepsake.  The echo quilting is just right.  NIcely done!

Thanks everyone.  Irene, I did the quilting on my Pfaff.  It has 11 inches to the right of the needle so I'm able to quilt more easily than I could before.

It is certainly a nice tribute to the man who wore these ties. His daughter will treasure this the rest of her life. You did a fantastic job. I love the quilting. Did you do that also?

Wonderful center design surrounded by the white background. The border just sets it off. Awesome quilt.
