A New Block and Ties and Bracelet

This is the latest block that I am working on called
I got a load of ties for making something out of.
Have you used ties in quilting or other art project.
I hope you will leave me a comment and tell me what you did with them.

These three pictures are of Catherine's blacksmithing bracelet that she made.


  1. Becky yes...perhaps you have seen them on my blog. some journal quilts...added to larger pieces too as flowers with buttons and beads added. I still have a ton of ties for future use.
    Your top piece is lovely and so is your banner!

    Catherine's bracelet looks awesome. Is it heavy to wear?


  2. Love your new quilt piece called "transformation".
    Looks like a new journey.
    I sent you a picture of chairs done with cool!
    Catherine's bracelet is fabulous. She is very talented! :)

  3. Thank you, both. I would imagine that the bracelet would not weigh more than a nice watch and metal watch band. It is too small for me to put on so I can't speak from experience...but I haven't heard her complain.

    You both inspire me!!!

  4. I look forward to seeing how your quilt progresses. What a fantastic way to recycle boring old ties and transform them into something really beautiful!! And Catherine's bracelet is amazing. What talent!
