As I was driving to work on Monday, I started thinking about making a quilt for a teacher who is going to take off a couple of months to do some aggressive cancer treatments.
After talking to her, I decided to make a hankie quilt.
Yes, it is the 5th one I have made...and the final...I am out of hankie panels.
So why a hankie quilt?
Here is why I am hooked on hankies.
When I was a little girl, my grandmother used to send me a hankie for my birthday.
When I pulled this one out, I thought, 'wow, I should put this in a little quilt.'
I think that when these hankies are added to the 30's reproductions they make a happy memory.
Now, back to work. I only have a week to finish this one up.
