    This is beautiful. My godfather brought back handkerchiefs from Japan, WWII, for my godmother. I inherited these handkerchiefs. This is a great idea. Thank you.

    That is beautiful! My mother had tons of hankies when she was alive. I don't know if one of my sisters held on to them or if they got tossed. I think I'm going to have to ask.

    This is a lovely quilt. Gives me a great idea for a place for all the hankies I have that belonged to my grandmother.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Oh that's a lovely quilt. I have been collecting hankerchiefs for a long time. I think its time to make a quilt out of them!

    Beautiful quilt. The back shows your beautiful quilting. So pretty could be reversible.

    Thanks so much for posting this. I have a box-full of my grandmother's hankies and I've been keeping them because I knew I'd find something to do with them eventually. Well, they look wonderful in the quilt, so now I know how to use them!

    Could you please tell us how the hankies are fastened to the quilt blocks? Are they sewn down with a fancy stitch or a zig zag stitch, etc?
