    Hankie quilt

    Made this hankie quilt in remembrance of my MIL. The buttons are from her mother dating back to 1880s.

    Great idea, carried out well. What a nice remembrance.

    You've got me thinking of making some from my MILs hankies which have been hanging around here in a box way too long. I could make one for each of her grandchildren that way, instead of like some I've seen all in one big quilt.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    I've seen sweet little dolls made from hankies but I like this WAY better. Your composition looks terrific.
