my creative space

My creative space is so hot this week .

Pretty , vintage hankies are being put together
for a very light blanket .
I can't call it a quilt because I'm not a quilter .
I think I'd like to be though .

Right now it would make for a pretty sheet in these hot hot hot nights. We have rain & cool temperatures in Canberra now, hope the rain travels your way or have you had enough water lately?? I'll send the cooler weather, love Posie

What a great idea for those beautiful hankies, I agree, looks like a quilt to me!

I like Jacqui's idea of a table cloth Clare. Or... you could put it back on the line each day just to make the yard look pretty!! LOL

Thats such a cute idea! In the midst of winter where I am so I'm storing your idea away for the summer.

I'd like to be too! Very, very cute :)

Chocolate Cat said...

This passes as a quilt to me!!! What a great idea, I have a huge basket of my Nan's hankies.

Kelly Casanova said...

Sewing squares of fabric together is as good as quilting to me! Love your blanket - looks so light and breezy on the line.

Trish said...

ooh very clever, yes it does have a patchworky look to it, with all the bits sewn together :)

Carmel's Closet said...

You have inspired me to finally do something with the pile of hankies I bought at Best & Less last year. Not until this weather passes though, nothing happening in my own creative space the last few days - too, too hot.
Have a good weekend.

RobynLouise said...

They look great with all the little coloured orders around the edges. It would look pretty as a tablecloth...high tea anyone....with cucumber sandwiches, of course?!

CHRIS said...

Hi Clare, Have done a QUILT just like yours many years ago from my great grandmas hanky collection. It's really where I began. Pretty sure you are going to be a quilter! Whilst I sewed the hankies long ago it wasn't until we started machine quilting that I turned it into a much loved quilt. Happy stitching Chrisb.

very pretty!

Shay said...

I love the tablecloth idea. Cant you just see this with high tea spread out all over it?

You could always do a quilted tablecloth - kill two birds with one stone.

Then invite me round for high tea.

Cate said...

Oh that is such a clever idea!! It looks so pretty :-)

Jindi's Cottage said...

Clever Clare...what a great idea to use those pretty hankies...
Oh and Blue...what a cutie...gorgeous...

Unknown said...

This is so gorgeous and inspiring! I'd love to make one for the end of my bed. The patterns on those hankies are so pretty!

chrisartist said...

A lovely idea. Full of childhood memories. Where do you find vintage hankies? Are they family pieces. ?

quilary said...

Very pretty and very quilt like! I think you would definitely be able to call yourself a quilter now

Thea said...

So sweet! I think this would also make a pretty curtain. x
