Handkerchief Corners Quilt
By Rebekah, don’t call me becky

Rebekah fell in love with Katie Jump Rope fabric and writes, “I bought a fat quarter pack in May 2007. It sat around in my fabric stash for a while until I figured out a good quilt pattern to follow…”

She continues, “…While I was reading Kaffe Fassett’s Passionate Patchwork, I came up with the idea to do a modified version of his Handkerchief Corners Quilt, spent some time planning it out and then made the quilt.” Rebekah has a post on her don’t call me becky blog with links to show the quilt’s development process, and a schematic for you to follow to make one yourself.

Hasn’t this been great fun?! Don’t forget to visit the Quilting Month Sew-Along Pool to add a block or quilt of your own!

    This has been soooo much fun. Thank you for doing it! I’ve gotten a ton of inspiration and have been able to try out a lot of new things. I’ve loved seeing all the quilt-of-the day quilts. The choices were excellent. They were all very inspiring without being too intimidating looking. They’ve given me lots of new ideas for ways to put together blocks and backings and use colors. And I’m planning on turning each of my block-along blocks into a mini quilt sandwich to practice my machine quilting. So thanks again for a wonderful month!!
