My recently widowed friend Lee liked the tie quilt which I showed on my first blog so much, she trusted me with 14 of her husband Jack’s ties and commissioned a wall hanging. The result was as follows:

Tie Collection Wall Hanging

Lee choose satin fabrics for the background in three lush colors: cream, maroon, and dark navy blue. I heavily quilted the wall hanging so that it lay flat and highlighted the borders, where the lush colors material made the quilt glow.  Lee says that everyone who sees it loves it.  She exhibits it in a dark corner of her dining area where it actually seems to glow.
