    First of crazy quilt hankie blocks

    This is the first of my crazy quilt hankie blocks. I think it's 14" square. Haven't got any of the stitching on yet. Someone had said they wanted to see the blocks. The inside piece is an old penny square.

    beautiful work. i'm doing 18" pillows for Christmas 2019. i'm done with next years handmade goodies.
    please show us your blocks as you finish them.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I am anxious to see what your crazy quilt looks like when it is finished. Some of that embroidering is wonderful!

    That is going to be a gorgeous quilt. The hankies & embroidered pieces make me think of my grandmother, who had a lot of this sort of thing.
