    Very pretty! It looks like you top stitched the hankies to a flannel square that you fringed?

    Women are Angels. And when someone breaks our wings......... we simply continue to fly ........ on a broomstick.
    We are flexible like that. OKAY?

    Lisa....all the hankies were not the same size.....so I sewed them to white flannel squares to create all the same size blocks... When it came time to do the snipping I didn't want to cut into the hankies!....& used pink polka dot flannel on the back ...creating sandwich blocks & then sewed all together.....like a rag quilt is done! This was my 3rd rag quilt.....I did a denim one made out of squares.....& a horizontal Halloween rag quilt! Learned my lesson on the Halloween one...pieced all my fabric together ....like a normal quilt & then tried to put it together! WRONG! Had to rip it all out & start over! Always do your research first!!!��

    I love love love it! It so reminds me of my grandma and my childhood. I carried one of her hanky's for something old when I got married. Well done.
