    I ended up taking the orange blocks out since I only had 2. I was able to incorporated them into the scrappy binding. Now onto another quilt for another sister with more of Grandmas hankies.

    Wow, your Grandma sure had a lot of hankies!

    All joking aside, your quilt is lovely.

    I've never seen a quilt like this made with hankies, so many blue hankies. I bought many vintage hankies on my trip north in October and will be making a quilt for my SIL. I am not ready to use my Mother's hankies yet.

    That's a really striking pattern!! Did you use random sized white rectangles in between the hankies? Great idea!

    That is a very unusual hankie quilt. I love the colors in this one. Good job.

    I used the Totally Tubular Technique from the Cottage Mama. I mixed the hankie pieces in with regular fabric. Lots of the white parts are from the hankies too. Once I got all of my hankie pieces prepped, it came together really fast.

    Very nice. I have been looking for a way to use my mom-in-laws hankies in a quilt. You have given me a great idea. I never thought about cutting them into squares. Did you back them with anything? Some of the ones I have are quite delicate.
