    Vintage Hankie Quilt....Finished!

    A friend gave me several vintage hankerchiefs she had when I told her I wanted to make a quilt with some I had purchased. I decided to make it in the quilt as you go form and it worked out wonderfully for me. I love the way it came out and wanted to share it with all of you. I hope you like it too.

    It's beautiful! Love the corner butterflies.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Love it! Reminds me that I still need to do something with my mother's. After she died my sister and I were cleaning out her closet. After we had each sorted a huge stack of clothes I asked my sis if she had checked the pants pockets. She said no why? I reminded her that mom always carried a handkerchief in her pocket. We went back through all the pants pockets and laughed every time we found another hanky. Then we had fun dividing them up. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    I like your quilt and it's giving me ideas. (Course that always happens when I'm browsing the forum.)

    I may have to make one of these with some of the hankies I received many as gifts years ago when we ladies still used hankies. It would be a memory quilt of sorts, although I'm not sure I can remember exactly who gave me which hankies at this point. Oh well, it would be a memory of my youth and a sweeter time of life.

    Making all the hankies into butterflies is nice but so cliché. I like the idea that you didn't do that. I like your layout of your blocks. Thanks for sharing.

    How beautiful! I love the birds in the corners and now I want to start collecting hankies to make one too.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
