How far apart should ties be on a tied quilt?
The spacing distance between ties depends on the wadding you are using, so check the manufacturer’s recommendations. Generally, the distance is between 3in and 8in − the looser the wadding, the closer the quilting needs to be.
How many ties do you need for a quilt?
You could need anywhere between 30 and 80 ties, depending on how prevalent they will be in the pattern. Research different patterns. If you don’t have an idea right off the bat, then check out some pattern books devoted solely to necktie quilts.
