Has anyone ever made or heard of a tie blanket?

Are you talking about the ones made of fleece? If so, I've made lots of these, they are really easy to make and people love them, very soft and cuddly. Here is a link to the directions from Joann's. It's a quick project and can be done very inexpensively. Fleece is on sale a lot at Hancock Fabrics and Joann Fabrics. You will probably have to cut and paste the link into your browser, it's a long one! Have fun!

Or are you referring to a quilt and instead of sewing it together you tie it?

Either one, fleece above or this won are fun to make.

I've seen tie skirts before!



I always thought they were really neat, but it would take a lot of effort.

As for blankets, I've seen both the fleece ones where you tie knots on the ends of the blanket and I've seen tied quilts. Both are very neat and a great way to cut down on excess.

LOL, that way my exact thought too. I would have to use entirely too many of ties to make my skirt :).
