Beautiful Hankies

Posted by Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage in ,

The other day I was talking to a lady at work, and mentioned I wanted to start a quilt for my granddaughter using old hankies as the squares. She ask me if I had enough and I told her I would need to get some more. So look what she gave me, I was so thankful for my gift.








I'm not real sure when I will start this project. It may wait until the weather is too hot to play outside. When this lady started working at my work I was not so sure how it was going to turn out. She has ended up being one of my dearest work buddies. Thank-you Roxie for the hankies and for being my friend!

That is so nice. I've never heard of using hankies in a quilt before. Sounds interesting. I'll have to look around and see if I have any hankies to donate to the cause. I used hankies a lot in making doll clothes. I'm not sure I have any now though.
Hugs,

I just pulled a picture out of a magazine of a "hankie quilt". It was so pretty that I thought I would make one someday. You're way ahead of me in your collection. I don't even have one yet! Can't wait to see how it turns out.

The very first one looks like one my Mom used to have.
What a great idea. I wonder how you make a strong quilt out of such beautiful dellicate hankies??

What beautiful hankies and a great idea to make a quilt from them... each would have their story.

One day I plan on making a family quilt from all the activity t-shirts I have saved from my children...

Wow, I just bet that the quilt will be so much fun. You will do a wonderful job.
