    Your quilt is so very soft and feminine. It is a beautiful way to use up those beautiful old hankies. I kind of miss those pretty hankies. I used to fold them up in pretty ways and wear them in a blouse pocket. They were to pretty to use in any other way. I think I still have them somewhere.

    Can't agree with everyone more! This is lovely and unique, I have been collecting hand embroidered handkerchiefs for years, looks like now I will have to collect patterned ones too. Couldn't bring myself to cut up the hand embroidered ones.

    Very beautiful. Love preserving the memories of yesteryear.
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.

    It's beautiful. I have some hankies, and I have a pattern I want to use with them where you fold them into a butterfly and tack them down onto a block. someday I will do it, but there are a lot of UFO's ahead of it.lol.
