👔Necktie Braid

Here's another beautiful and unique quilt top made by Sunny!!!
Quilt Info:
Maker: Sunny
Size: 80" X 71"
Batting: Hobbs 80/20 Black
Thread: Glide--Lead Grey
Pantograph: Obsidian ⤵️ from Urban Elementz
Sunny requested one of the same pantographs that I used on her last two quilts. Obsidian adds great texture!!! ⤴️ ⤵️
Interesting Info: Sunny made this fun braid quilt from thrift store neckties! She backed each one with fusible interfacing, which I was very glad about! It gave the quilt good body for quilting. 
These neckties individually are so interesting!!! 
This Ginny Beyer print in red and green on the back suits Sunny's quilt so well!!! ⤵️
Beautiful, beautiful quilt, Sunny!!!


  1. What a nice quilt those ties make. And, yep very interesting collection. My hubby would never have worn most of them. Oh well. Obsidian is an interesting design. But, I will be strong and not ever go look at it!

  2. Wow what a lot of different print ties. Before you said she interfaced each one, I was thinking what a bear it must have been to sew them.

  3. Such a beautiful, unique quilt! And what a great idea to use the braid pattern and showcase all those gorgeous ties. The quilting is wonderful.

  4. What a unique and beautiful quilt! That quilting was the perfect accent!

  5. Those neckties are so fun! the red sashing really gives a pop to the quilt, and your quilting is spot on!

  6. There must have been some flashy dressers in Sunny's "neighbourhood"! What a great quilt - and it would be a great pattern to use as a memory quilt using grandpa's ties...

  7. That's a lot of ties. Wow. Great effect especially with the added quilting.

  8. A real beauty! And so timely to see because I just got a big bunch of neckties given to me by a guild friend, along with the challenge to make "something".

  9. Neckties? I had to look closely. I even showed my husband. He said he'd offer up some of his many ties hanging in his closet, lol. I love the sashing between the rows. And your quilting looks great!

  10. What a fun quilt! I don't know that I would have the patience to make all those pieces with interfacing but I am sure it is well worth it. Lovely quilting to tie it all together!

  11. A beautiful use of neckties, i love this quilt! And your Obsidian quilting adds a lot of curves and swirls in all these angles, gorgeous!
    Thank you for sharing ;)
