I’m working on the borders…

AAQI-SamplerImage-06

I haven't trimmed the center block yet so it's a bit out of proportion, as is the border. There are two side borders, none top and bottom. This AAQI quilt will finish at 16" x 16" – a nice to hang, don't you think?

Notice that Nan has her purse now. I am tempted to tuck a hankie up her sleeve (that's where she always carried her hankie) but I think it would look like a 'mistake' rather than an intentional object. I'll just imagine that her hankie is there.

I had intended to use a ribbon or bias strip for the twisty vine in the borders but it just wasn't working out. So I broke the vine into overlapping pieces and that is working well.

  2. How true about the hankies! It was so handy to have one and if you didn’t have a pocket, you always had a sleeve in your dress or sweater…

  3. Becky, love the quilt! Please stick the hanky in the sleeve. All of us who remember gramma’s with hankies will know exactly what it is.
