Crazy Quilting with Vintage Hankies


I absolutely adore quilt making.   I remember the days when I used to quilt for hours at a time.  Since my jewelry designs have taken off at the boutiques and on the internet, I don't get to quilt as often as I'd like to.  However, I recently had some vacation time from work which I used to work on some mini crazy quilts.  All 10 of them (yes, 10!)  were made from vintage hankies.  These quilts were inspired by Cindy Brick, who came up with the concept of "Hanky Panky Quilts".  I became hooked on this concept ever since I bought her book years ago.  It is still one of my all-time favorite quilt books. 

Here are some of my latest mini quilts which I recently posted on Etsy and on EBay:
