I took the day off and quilted away.
This is a hanciercief that has been around for as long as I can remember maybe it was my grandfathers or maybe my great grandfathers it's a shame that I do not know. Or a goodwill find but I doubt it.
What I do know is that it has been one of my favorite hankies that I have collected from different people and places. I recently went vintage hankie shopping and they wanted $15.00 for one. I couldn't pay that much when I knew there was a stash of hankies in a box somewhere in my house.
So away I went looking through my boxes and was unable to find what I was looking for. A few days later I was cleaning and I looked over at my husbands night stand and there was a perfect hankie. This was a hankie that I could freely quilt away on no rules or guidelines just fun.
To the left of my foot and forward a bit you can see a white arrow, there is a small hole that was starting to appear. So I knew that my quilting had to be something dense this is why I decided close straight lines it also helps to push out the bubbles which push out the feathers.
In this picture you can see that the fabric is linen and a little worn.
Here I am my 5 year old took my picture :)
