A Father's Day quilt

Here is a tie quilt that reminds us of an ornate tapestry. The quilt was created by Bette Haddon, an award-winning quilt artist who lives in beautiful DeFuniak Springs, Florida. She used whole ties along with tie tips, labels, and buttons, to create a highly textured surface (we counted over 200 buttons and labels).

In addition to the quilts shown on Bette Haddon's website, check out her stunning 2006 Color Dance quilt (you can see a photo of Bette at the St. Andrew's Bay Quilt Guild Scrapbook of Memories).

  1. I've been saving ties, but never in a million years would I have come up with something like this!


  2. Wow Defuniak Springs is 45 minutes up the road, I love to ride my motorcycle up that way!!!

  3. We are privileged to have Bette in our Chautauqua Quilters Guild in Defuniak Springs, FL. She is an awesome quilter and serves as mentor to many of us. Her trunk shows are simply the best!!
