If you've been around for awhile you remember that my Grandpa passed away back in April. After, my Grandma gave me all of his old ties not knowing what to do with them and not wanting to throw them away.
I didn't want to make just any old project with them so I decided to make a quilt for my Grandma. I knew it would be something she would love since they were ties from my Grandpa and also because I made it with love.
All the ties cut into squares, ready for sewing
All the squares sewn into long sections
The finished quilt.
As you can imagine there were lots of tears this Christmas too. My Grandma was completely surprised and loved it beyond words.
It will certainly be an heirloom that is cherished for many, many decades to come.
