The photo reveal of the Tie Quilt.

Pardon the snow flakes fluttering by, but here is the long awaited picture - drum roll please- of the Neck Tie Quilt! I finished it last night, bound it and attached my label before crashing into bed with a case of the flu. My DS has been home for 3 days with it, so I guess it was only time before I got it.
The weather is not cooperating today, so the recipient has called and asked for delivery tomorrow instead of today. I'm totally fine with that. It gives me a day to pamper myself and feel better.
This is a large queen size, so I could only hold it up so far, but you get the idea. The center medallion is set down 10" to allow for tucking up under the pillows. There is a corner fan in each corner. The backing is flannel. The base fabric behind the ties is bridal satin.

Note to self. No more necktie quilts. No more queen sized quilts with flannel backing. They are just too heavy for me to tug around under the machine. I'm liking quilters cotton a lot more these days. :)

Very nice! Now you can say you've done a necktie quilt and look at all you've learned. Thanks for sharing with us.
