Gordon's Necktie Quilt

We decided early on to go with a brick pattern since the ties were so disparate in color and style.

The little tags on the ends of each were labeled so that I could determine which strip of bricks came next.

I found actual suiting material to use as the backing. It's a wool-cashmere blench pinstripe in gray. Also, Gordon shares his initials with Geoffrey Beane and although that particular tie wasn't among GB's collection, I had to use it to throw in some personalization. Here is the quilt with the back pinned and ready to finish.

And here it is done.
