    Handkerchief Quilt

    Howdy y'all :c)

    A few months ago, I saw a lap quilt somewhere on the internet that was made out of ladies hankies. I thought it was beautiful, and decided to make one on a little bit larger scale to give to my ex-mother-in-law to put on her bed at the nursing home she is in. I just got it finished yesterday, and I think it turned out pretty good. :c) What do y'all think?

    I got them from eBay, but AFTER I bought them and already had them fused onto the fabric, my sister gave me a bunch she had collected over the years. I have enough to make 2 more now! LOL!
