What materials did you use? Entire quilt, Front, Back and binding is made from Bandanas.

What are you most proud of? I LOVE the bright Bold Colors of this and the fact that I left the "label" on them I think it gives the quilt more "personality"

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Bandanas/Hankies are not the easiest medium to work with as there are never 2 exactly the same and they all very slightly is size..

Really pretty. I use bandanas, a lot, myself. There should be some outfits & a makeup bag on my page.

This is so cute! I'm doing something similar with bandanas and other head scarves I wore during chemotherapy treatment.

I've always wanted to do something like this just to use as a table cloth. Never thought for a quilt! Very nice. One question though, did you launder the hankies first? I know some people always prewash quilting cottons.

I normally do not prewash my fabrics and I made a mistake on this one not prewashing it cause the colors bled a little bit in the first wash... Im working on an American flag outa red white and blue hankies and I did wash them before working with them...

Pattern/tutorial??

I dont have a pattern for this.. However i'm sure you can find a tutorial for making 12" pinwheels (just google it) I believe I used aprox 20 bandanas for the top.. The border is the left over pieces from the pinwheels. :0) Good luck and have fun making one.. :0)
