Silk Necktie Quilt
The UNLWC Piecemakers Quilt Group created a beautiful new quilt from silk neckties. The neckties belonged to Prem Paul, UNL Vice Chancellor for Research, from 2001 – 2016. His widow, Missy Paul donated the neckties to the quilting group to use for their projects. The quilt was 44” x 52”, contained 42 blocks and included parts of 126 of his silk ties. It was raffled at the Spring Luncheon in 2019.
The members of the group were so pleased that their quilts have been used to help provide scholarship funds, to students at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.
