Recycled Tie Quilt for Dale

I like this design that Carol used for this Tie quilt for her son Dale.  The off-white parts are muslin, and the ties are strip pieced into colourful blocks for in an off-set center portion.

Carol collected some ties from her husband and her son Dale, so there are some bits of history and memories in this quilt, however she also collected a bunch of out-grown (or outdated) ties from the guys in her aqua size class.
For quilting Carol picked the Chantilly Lace pantograph by Norma Sharp and a maroon coloured thread, which makes such a flattering design on the muslin.

What a charming gift for her son Dale.

Quilters recycle piece by piece.
