Preface. My infatuation with neckties began at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, Massachusetts. I was inspired - not by a quilt, but by a darling little evening bag from the gift shop that was made from a single silk tie! I studied it closely and made some mental notes on its construction and the improvements I would make. As soon as I got home, I stitched one together. In fact, I had been so excited with the idea that I had even bought a necktie at a shop in the airport - on sale it was $15! (I gasp to think of it! Since then, I haven’t paid more than $2.99 for a tie.) I began collecting ties, choosing those that I thought would make good purses and many that I thought were too beautiful to even think of cutting up. I made lots of little purses, saturating my family and friends with them as gifts. One day I looked around and took stock of the number of ties and tie scraps I had accumulated and decided I needed to make some bigger projects. Being a quilter, the answer was obvious - quilts! I thought fusible interfacing was the way to go, but I didn’t find much on the Internet or in available books. So, I started experimenting and came up with a method that worked well for me. As I began to make quilts out of neckties and to talk about what I was doing, I was amazed at the number of people who confessed to having a stash of ties that they were planning on doing something with, “one day.” Not just quilters, but nonquilters as well. I decided to write this book for three reasons: (1) to share my technique of using fusible interfacing to stabilize the necktie material and to facilitate rotary cutting, (2) to provide practical information on sewing with neckties that will be of use to quilters at any skill level, and (3) to provide some fresh ideas for making quilts with neckties. I approached the project as a quilter. Now I find myself constantly looking at quilt patterns and asking, “Can I do that in neckties?” As a result, many of my quilts are not what you would normally think of when someone says to you, “necktie quilt.” I hope you will be pleasantly surprised. It is my ambition to give quilters the tools to approach a necktie quilt project with confidence and to see that the exquisite fabrics so often found in neckties can be repurposed to make stunningly beautiful quilts. ...
