Tie Blocks 1/3 Finished

I am giving myself a
The neck tie blocks are 1/3 of the way finished.

It seems like it's taking forever to get these blocks done,
but I think it's because I have had limited time in my
Hidey Hole lately.

All is well and I am making progress.

The blocks will not stay in this arrangment.
As I finish them, they are added to my Design Wall.


I thought the cotton shirting I'm using for the sky
was a really dark blue,
Well, I had to order more and it turns out it's black!


The friend for whom I am making this quilt
(they are his ties)
is a very conservative person.
He did have a couple of fun ties, though.

I could not cut these two up to make the
Flying Geese.
 They are going in as rectangles.


Onward and upward!

I'm linking to Design Wall Monday today.

Happy Quilting!

Three cheers for the tie quilt! Is coming along so nicely. Your solution for those large prints is perfect. Cutting them up would have been a big mistake!
