Quilt made of Silk Neck Ties


My Step-mother's Dad passed away a couple years ago and she gave me all of his old ties.  I took them apart and made this quilt.  The blocks were 8" and sewn over a leave-in lightweight foundation.  I just added them free-form like hidden wells sorta.

I quilted his full name "Paul Fredrick Harris" in the quilt on the diagonal.  I outlined quilted that a few times,, and in the rest added large spirals.  I also added two large stylized feather plumes on opposite corners and outlined that a bit.   Here are some closeups of the quilting:
