Patty's Handkerchief Quilt

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.
