    My gosh. I normally don't like pastel colors or lacy things but your quilt is a work of art. I love it!

    I too have old hankies from mother n law and Aunt. What a wonderful way to use them. I was toying with the butterfly one but like this one more. I do have some displayed in a collectors spoon rack hanging on the wall in the guest room. I like this better. Great job!

    Love the way you have put this together - makes me want to start collecting hankies. Wonderful work that will make wonderful memories.

    I must remember the "by guess or by gosh" saying also.

    It's lovely and brings us back to a time when hankies were USED. Thanks for sharing!

    This is the first hankie quilt that I have actually liked. What a wonderful and unique way to display them. Beautiful, creative work of art. Thanks for sharing.

    A beauty indeed... I love all the hankies as I know you do to.
    Hope you find your pal. Maybe show the magazines and she
    may see it and find you.

    This is a beautiful quilt. I like the way you used your
    handkerchiefs. I've seen other ways to use them but like your best. I have some of my grandmothers hankies from both sides of the family. How many hankies did you use?

    I also have a box of antique hankies...some from my grandmother, some from my mom and some from a dear, beloved cousin. I have been considering making ahanky crazy quilt and yours has convinced me to do so. Your's is absolutely fabulous. Thank you for sharing.

    BTW...There is a book out there (and I have it) "Hanky-Panky Crazy Quilts" by C. Brick.

    Hugs, Drue

    Your crazy quilt using the vintage hankies is beautiful. I love the sashing and the borders. So cool. Thanks for sharing.

    Just wonderful. I also have a box of hankies given to me by my fifth grade teacher who is 86. Now I have an idea on how to use them. Your quilt is beautiful!

    That is just beautiful.......I have about fifty or so hankies that belonged to my mom and a few that was my grandmothers......I would love to do something like that so I could look at all the pretty hankies often....
