Tie One On!

This is a quilt that is almost ready for a bed or to be made into a giant wall hanging. Mom loved making motifs from old ties and using them as focal points for her works. First she would take apart the ties by hand, launder them, press them and then incorporate them into one of her quilt themes. She had so many. She would watch the quilting programs daily and as soon as she finished watching, she'd make the swatch so she'd remember it...no tevo or vhs tapes for her.

And to think she only started quilting after she was 75!
