Tie quilt and baby chicks update.

I have the top of the tie quilt pieced, and I am really happy with it.  I have enough tie scraps to make another top, so that will begin soon.  What I like the best are the setting squares.  Along with the ties were several bow ties.  There is very, very little usable fabric in a bow tie.  I was able to cut four, 2" squares from each bow tie.  Those are the setting squares.

And, an update on all the baby chicks.  They are doing fine, Momma hen has now left them on their own, and soon some of them will go to their new homes.  It is fun to look on the lawn and see so many little chicks.

I wasn't able to get all the babies in the photo, but you can see they are all growing up, all in that awkward, ugly stage right now, but still cute.

Happy Thursday everyone, thanks for reading, I appreciate it.



  1. Love the tie quilt. It is like i pictured it. Each block stands on its own like a photograph, to tell its story. The setting squares are an added touch!
    Good job.

  2. What a great memento. This is a great way to use up ties and great a beautiful memory quilt. Great thinking with the bow ties! You're so frugal!

  3. Wow! Love your tie quilt, well done. Gorgeous!
