Design Wall Monday April 18

on my design wall this Monday is my I'm a Fan of Father's Day (Ties). I think the top is finished. As it will not be something easy to wash, it will need to be a wall hanging size and if it gets more borders, it will be too big :)

The backgrounds of the blocks all came from men's shirts and the sashing is chambray, so it COULD have come from a man's shirt.

I'm now trying to figure out the quilting design. I think I know what I'm doing in the sashing, but I'm still not sure about the blocks themselves. If you have any ideas, please share!

For those who are interested, I just finished the quilting on the challenge piece that I showed last week. The Army Guy and I were just brainstorming about how to make the rest of my ideas for this little quilt work out. Next week it might all have come together (I hope!).

Very cool use of ties and shirts! Were these from a collection or family?

I collected the shirts and ties at thrift stores. The Army Guy has quite a few ties, but he wouldn't let me touch them!
