I love your hanky quilt. I am in the process of making one with my collection of 100+ hankies.
Its daunting to begin to cut them up, but I need to bite the bullet and make that first cut.
Looking at your lovely quilt gives me courage.
Thank you for sharing your story and your quilt.

This quilt looks so delicate. You did a beautiful job on it. It would be nice if your old pen pal shows up here to share her love of this quilt.

Really lovely. I like hankies, and from time to time I buy some at at antique store, but I use them as hankies.
