Silk Tie Quilt, 36" x 59" I started off with the ties as I received them. The colors were consistently dark red and navy blue. The blocks I constructed with those are contained within the blue and teal bands. With the rest, I stripped the colors out and redyed with red, yellow and blue. I used these ties to create the pieced cross and borders. Although I was frustrated and dissatisfied throughout the whole process, I like the finished result very much, and am planning to do more.
