    I wish I had some of my grandmothers hankies. She always had one in her purse or tucked in her sleeve. They all disappeared.. the quilts is so soft and feminine looking. I love the lavender ..

    GORGEOUS! I have a box of hankies - waiting for the right pattern AND I adore crazy quilts. Thanks so much for the idea.

    Crazy Quilt from antique hankies

    What a beautiful quilt you have created with your hankies. I love the way you have put them together and the purple sashing really sets them off. I love your creation so much. I have seen many many hankies at garage sales and estate sales and have often wondered how they would look made into a quilt and you have shown us how beautiful they can become. You have inspired to look for hankies while out at garage sales/estate sales or antique shops or just asking friends and family for the ones they no longer have need for. Thanks for sharing this with us and for giving me the courage to tackle one.

    That is truly awesome! I too, have a collection of hankies that were my mother's and grandmother's, and just cannot bear to get rid of them. I have seen patterns for hanky quilts, but they seemed too difficult. This pattern is perfect! Thank you for sharing...and for the inspiration.

    Your quilt is just beautiful!! I wish that I had all the hankies that we gave to my MIL over the years, but she was bad about throwing things away. Just PM me and I'll give you all the necessary info for you to leave it to me in your will. lol
    Have a blessed day.

    OMG above!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!! I have some hankies that were my moms, would love to make a hankie quilt wall hanging from them. I have other old hankies that weren't my mom, don't want to use them. You have really made a keepsake quilt. Congradulations..........can't say enough about your quilt.

    I just love what you did with those hankies. That is a beautiful quilt to treasure and pass down through generations. I hope you put a label on it so 50 years from now it will be known who make this, when it was made and whose hankies they were.
