The tie has achieved notoriety as the traditional Father's Day gift to Dad from his family. However, some quilt artists have turned neckties into brilliant works of art. Here is a quilt that reminds us of an ornate tapestry.
Father's Day 1976, by Bette Haddon, at Studio ArtQuilts
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).
