As life gets less formal, neckties don’t get worn like they used to, leaving your customers with a stash of unused ties. Show them how to recycle lonely ties into spectacular quilts and home accessories that look nothing like the typical stodgy necktie quilt! Christine Copenhaver draws on years of experimenting to teach the best techniques for working with silk tie fabric. Quilters will love using necktie colors, patterns, and textures to make striking Hexagons, Log Cabins, Lone Stars, Flying Geese, and more. (These quilts look just as good in standard quilt fabrics!) Includes projects for both beginners and experienced quiltmakers.
