I made this quilt from handkerchiefs that I found while cleaning my mom's basement. Her 'collection' spanned multiple generations and multiple familiies. There were over 100 hankies. I used the larger, more colorful ones in this quilt. The backing was made from some striped fabric that we used as a tablecloth with rose colored Currier and Ives dishes. This quilt is now the bedspread in my guest room/sewing room. It brings back memories every day.
