Small hankie quilt I made for my mom
2 Attachment(s)
My mom loves pansies and I love hankies. It was a practice for a larger hankie quilt that is in my future.

What a great way to use pretty hankies.

very nicely done

very beautiful. I've always loved these quilts. It's one of the reasons I got into quilting to begin with. Aren't Hankies great?

Very nicely done. You just don't find the handkerchiefs like you use to in the 50s. Guess Kleenex tissue made them extinct.

Really pretty. It is getting harder and harder to find the fancier hankies to use in projects like this. What a very nice gift for DM.

mcdaniel023 12-31-2015 05:08 AM

Not her hankies. Two were her moms, though.

Lovely quilt. Beautiful hankies too!

Very pretty.....

How did you attach the hankies to the fabric? Steam-a-seam?

Jordan 12-31-2015 01:23 PM

Very pretty!

I used Wonder Under light.

So sweet! It looks so delicate and feminine!

husker67 12-31-2015 05:55 PM

I have plans to make one, too. What did you do? Sew the hankie to one square? Love it.

I have some hankies that belonged to my mom. This is an excellent way to show them off. Love your quilt!

Dina 12-31-2015 07:49 PM

Just as sweet as can be!

I sewed each hankie onto an individual square. I cut white squares 2 1/2 inches larger than the largest hankie. I used Wonder under light to attach. I did a small zigzag stitch around the edges.

Lovely work. I wish I had followed my instincts and kept all of the hankies that have passed though my life. But cleaning out unused items got the better of me. Now, I will just admire the work of others like yours. Thank you for posting.

Beautiful hankies that are beautifully showcased.

jamsbuying 01-01-2016 05:25 AM

Lovely; beautiful hankies and wonderful quilting.

JoyjoyMarie 01-01-2016 06:17 AM

What a nice quilt for your mom. My mom loved pansies and hankies too! I wrote up the hankie stories, took pictures, and passed them on to my daughter. (There's only so much stuff I can keep around this house, and my UFOs are it!)

mjhaess 01-01-2016 07:09 AM

Gorgeous....Mom will love it...

llong0233 01-01-2016 09:04 AM

Oh my gosh that is just too sweet What a lovely bunch of hankies you have.

cashs_mom 01-01-2016 09:08 AM

That's so pretty. I have a friend that loves pansies and violets and anything purple. She'd love that!

linmid 01-01-2016 09:27 AM

So dainty and very nicely done.

Mamia 01-01-2016 09:29 AM

Love this quilt and the quilting. I have a bunch of hankies given to me by my mother-in-law and her best friend. Now I know what I'm going to do with them.
Thank you for sharing.
