Handkerchief Rag Quilt - My favorite

I fall in love with all of my rag quilts for some reason but here is my all time favorite (so far).

 I was so inspired by SprinkleBabyVintage vintage handkerchief quilt that I wanted to try one as a rag quilt. Here is the result.

This handkerchief rag quilt is made with 25 pretty vintage-style hankies, white flannel and snow white, warm fleece on the back. It has been clipped on all the seams except I left the finished scalloped edges of the hankies around the perimeter intact and just clipped the underside flannel and fleece. I have already washed and dried this pretty quilt once to begin the ragging process. It will get softer with every wash.

The thing I like the best is the watercolor quality of the clipped seams.

The quilt measures approx. 49" x 49"

This quilt sold in 2011 but I have been gathering more hankies and I have about 21.  When I reach 30 I will make another.


  1. This is great. Thank you for sharing.

  2. This is sooooo beautiful, I have to make one! What a fabulous idea! I have my mother's hankerchiefs since she passed away and no idea what to do with them. Thank you so much for sharing this, it is perfect for my mom's hankies!
