Necktie log cabin

My first pillow top made with thrifted neckties. I still need to finish the back, but I'm excited about the outcome so far. Size: 22" square.

Posted on my blog: woofnanny.blogspot.com/2006/04/necktie-log-cabin.html

I feel to a certain extent that I have found my crafting niche here. I love recycled and reused projects and textiles. I love working with neckties, despite the difficulty in working with the bias cut. I have a few more of these in progress right now, and will post soon.

My other crafting niche is with collage of paper and fabric combined. I really want to further explore mixed media collage.

 

Update: I opted not to finish the pillow--I'm aiming for a quilt instead
