A perfect blend


 A perfect blend of  man's and woman's handkerchiefs.



Some of you may have had enough of posting of these blocks on my other blog but I am having way too much fun. I have used up all of the strings I started out with so now just playing around with blocks.


They are now neatly stacked and in a box. I will wait until the next break between two projects to make more of these. If you want a rough guidelines on measurements for these, visit here.

If you end up making one, I would love to see it. I have created an open flickr group for Handkerchief Quilts. Would you mind sharing your pictures?

  1. How could we have enough of seeing these wonderful blocks. I love the combined version, and the single versions too. Id be in a dilemma of which way to use them.

  4. I like when they are mixed as they set off in an interesting way. Are these really handkerchiefs? I think I missed why its called this. I'd love to other block set. I always think its interesting how different stashes make different moods.
