Awhile back i purchased a little package of christmas hankies- vintage style. They have sat for a bit and i thought– hey, what about making them up just like the hankie baby quilt?
So– after picking the background size based on the largest hankie, i played with the layout and design. I only had 6 hankies, so the layout is a bit different from the first hankie quilt.
It ended up as a table runner– which i am totally in love with!
I kept with all red for the background…and will be sharing the whole thing shortly when it gets quilted. Oh that quilting pile is ever growing!
I also picked up a book the other day–
I love it! It's not an easy one to come by– and i wish the whole quilt was pictured, but the little embroideries are wonderful! might have to snatch a few for another project. Not sure though if it will be hexagon shape….hmmmm
