Hankie Quilt for my Daughter

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am elated that this quilt turned out so beautifully. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pre wash all handkerchiefs; pre wash fabric; pre wash lace and use a flat lace that you can stitch down and quilt over. Use French Fuse or a light weight stabilizer behind the thin or worn hankies. My quilt was quilted by a LAQ.

What you will need

  • 100% cotton handkerchiefs 100% cotton print fabric for quilt poly down for batting 100% cotton fabric backing French Fuse for stabilizing some hankies 100% cotton lace
