Tie Dyes and Dyed Ties

Here's my finished quilt for the Flying Geese Quilters auction, which is in October. (I'll come up with the date later.) But it's due in September. Anyway, I'm calling it "Tie Dyes and Dyed Ties." I've been wanting to make a quilt with tie dyes and dyed ties for some time - just because it's fun to say those words together!

The tie dyes are from Ghana. The ties come from my husband and other sources, and I put dye on them. English paper pieced, hand quilted, hand embroidered, hand appliqued, embellished with a fun mix of buttons, many of them vintage.
