    Here are two other examples. They are a lil off center and stuff. These were the first two I completed just a couple weeks ago.

    There is no cheating in quilting! There are no quilt police either! Anything you can think of and create is perfect, just like the quilts you've posted. Way to go.
    I have a bag of hankies and head scarves that I'm going to be looking at with a whole lot of interest now.
    Thanks for sharing you work with us.

    I have some head scarves as well but they are really thin and I am trying to figure out how I can use them in a quilt similar to my hankie quilt.

    Y'know, I like the first one best - the soft colors and how the first and third are a little longer. It makes it MUCH more interesting!

    Henry:
    Your work is wonderful! You will get better with each project and with each project you'll be surprized at how much you learn. I've been quilting about 6 years and I'm not what I consider a good quilter yet but I keep striving for greatness. :lol: It may not happen but in the journey I'm making some nice gifts! :wink: I also want to comment on your desire to continue the quilting tradition in your family. We live in such a fast moving, electronic world it's wonderful to hear that someone WANTS to preserve the "old" ways. Keep up your great work.
