|All Tied Up
The stars are made from mens’ ties. The background fabric was chosen to look like a man’s suit. The two borders are made from the scraps of the ties. The shirts on the outside are real little boys shirts and the buttons in the stars are from the shirts. The little ties are from the ends of the ties.

When my son was about 16, I had him look though magazines and find a quilt he liked. He picked this Fons and Porter pattern. I spent a year or so collecting various blues, then another couple years making it. I finally finished this year – he is now 20! He loves it!

|Dad’s Crown Royal Quilt

My dad wanted a Crown Royal bag quilt, so when he got married, I pulled every last one I had collected and used a horse batik to make the 5 yard quilt pattern. I enlarged it to a queen. I love how the batiks accent the CR bags and my dad loves his quilt. He won’t let anyone take it out of his sight.

My Dad loves golf, if he’s not playing he’s watching it on tv. So for his 70th birthday this past February I made him this quilt. Except for a few traditional quilt blocks, I designed it myself. Since golf originated from Scotland, I tried to stay in the theme using mostly plaids.

|I Am a Fan of Father’s Day Ties
Inspired by the book “Daddy’s Ties” by Shirley Botsford, I began buying ties and shirts at thrift stores (the men in my life are not retired). I also found the chambray at a thrift store to sash, border, bind and back the quilt. I quilted it on my old Bernina 930 and used shirt buttons as accents.

|Jelly Roll Surprise
By: Angela S in Arkansas,
I started by sewing up a jelly roll from Connecting Threads. I used tan from my stash for the big blocks. And no clue where it was going. I used my 16″ square and just cut, designed, and sewed and this is what I ended up with. The only thing left was a 6″ strip. It’s just a top. Fun and simple.

I made this quilt for my son for his 30th birthday. I did a slightly different take on the Turning Twenty pattern, used 30 fat quarters to make 30 blocks, therefore the name “Turning 30”. There are no floral prints in the quilt. His little dog Freya was excited to have a new quilt to cuddle up on.
