A surprise for my brother
Yes, it's the tie quilt again, except this is a second tie quilt. I made this one as a surprise for my brother, and he was blown away. He didn't know how much he wanted his own until he saw the one he had me make for Joanie. He was thrilled when I surprised him with his own quilt made from David's ties.
I quilted this one differently, a bit more quilting and I am really happy with the texture it gives the quilt.
The back is stunning. (can you see where I missed the continuous curves on one square? I had to re-load the quilt and finish that block)
So, I do think this is the last post on the tie quilts. I loved the challenge, and the results of this project, and I think I made my brother very happy.
Now, I am looking at my next quilt. A customer brought me a bag of T-shirts. Yep, I am making a quilt out of them.
Thank you for following the tie quilts journey with me, I appreciate it.
