Quilts have been around for a very long time.
Friends donate patches that hold special meaning for another friend on special occasions. Or you can take old t-shirts and make them into a fun quilt. Really you can take many different articles of clothing or materials to create a fun quilt so why not ties?
You can create patterns, you can cut them into pieces, there are no rules of how you use them to make a quilt. You just need to decide what kind of ties you want to use in your quilt. When you’re deciding on which ties to select for your necktie quilts, you need to think about color, texture and design, and affordability. The colors you use depend on what colors you want.
You can choose whatever you want with the texture and design depending on your wants, but remember people may use this as a blanket. And you shouldn’t break the bank for a quilt, so set a budget and try to focus on buying affordable ties for the majority and select only a few really nice ones for some ‘wow’ factor.
Here I have listed some ties that would work well for quilt making.
- Color: Of course, if you are planning to make quilts for kids, go bright and happy. Ties can be found in every color of the rainbow and still a few. Choose your color scheme first and use design and texture to add interest.
- Design and texture. Handmade quilts in the traditional sense often include fine floral prints, but who said that you have to stick to traditional? There is no limit on the designs and textures available so have fun and strengthen your theme with clever choices.
- Affordability: Let’s just say it: Making a quilt can use a lot of ties and that can add up. If you need to watch the budget of your project, use super affordable ties for the basics and add a wow factor by selecting a few amazing pieces to use as focal points.
