This project came out far nicer than I expected. I had Cindy Brick’s Hanky-Panky Crazy Quilts and a pile of my grandmother’s handkerchiefs, none of which seemed overly special.
However, after following Cindy’s excellent directions and adding a few special touches, I was quite pleased with the outcome. The cat, the African violet buttons and all the bits of green bring to mind particular memories of my grandmother and my relationship with her.
So, if you ever find yourself with a stash of hankies and are wondering what to do with them, try making one of these little quilts. I think you’ll find it a very meaningful way to honor someone special.
