Rose's "Handkerchief Quilt" - made from a pattern called Love Letters by Pineapple Press . Each hankie is folded and pieced to create an envelope. Rose is giving this quilt to her granddaughter - a very, very special treasure! I quilted it with freehand flowers and swirls in the sashings; swirls around each hankie, and cross hatching in the body of the hankie. Rose is going to add antique buttons to hold down the envelope "flap" . . . see the picture at the end!

Here it is all finished - embellished with antique buttons!
If that quilt wasn't beautiful enough . . . then I got to quilt Ruth's Dresden quilt - another gift for a granddaughter! I put "ghost"' dresdens in that big border, stitched around each Dresden blade - which really made them "pop" - and then freehand swirls and continuous curves in the rest. This got me hooked on dresdens!

Until next time - cheers from the Little House.
