Story

For many years our mother collected ties. She would pick up unusual ones at MCC Thrift Stores or when travelling collected and collected ones from family members as they were no longer needed. Our father gave her 50 ties for her 50th birthday, 60 ties for her 60th birthday and so on. These ties were the basis for many pillows, blankets and other projects over the years. This quilt represents ties from her collection which includes ties of our father and grandfather.
