I was sure I remembered posting about this quilt as I was getting ready to begin quilting it. I even remembered one of my regular followers leaving a comment. But it must have all been in my imagination, because for the life of me I can’t find it. If someone runs across it please let me know so I will know I’m not really losing my mind.

This quilt is made from hankies that belonged to two of my grandmas. If you want the whole story, plus information on making a memory quilt and more photos of a few of mine you will need to read Making Memorable Memory Quilts.

But I will share a few more photos here that I did not share on the longer article.

Like this close up of a hanky belonging to my Grandma Edith:

  1. Great craftsmanship! I certainly do remember that post, and I was just thinking to ask you how was quilting coming along. The color is very nice. Be Blessed, Mtetar

    1. Thank you. Now I know I’m wasn’t imagining things. Most of the photos of hanky quilts I found had white or off white backgrounds and I didn’t think my hankies would show up. I was thinking a little darker blue than I ended up with, but I like it.
