Handkerchief Quilt

When Moda released these cute reproduction handkerchiefs in their own little case, I immediately thought of using them to make a quilt for my sister, Mary. This is probably the closest I’ll ever come to making a sampler type quilt, and it’s really not that close. I guess the one thing that makes it a little sampler-like is the unique quilting pattern on each block. It was a lot of fun making up the quilting designs, but I wish now that I had added sashing between the blocks. Mary displays the quilt on the wall behind her bed.
