Cindy’s Creations

GranGran’s Handprints

I searched for about 2 weeks for something to do on the plane. Flight is 4 hrs with a 2 hr layover in Dallas. Said project needed to be easily folded into my already bulging purse. My carryon bag will be a bag with the Ducky quilt in it.

I found this pattern in Better Homes and Gardens teach yourself to hand-applique’. They did the project in wool but I’m not into wool. So I will blanket stitch by hand. I am thinking about using floss instead of silk thread. The pattern was actually called Grandmother’s Handprints but since I’m GranGran so will my project be.

Not sure if you can see the black line that I drew on the background. That is where a navy border is suppose to be sewn on. I’m looking for some trim with hands on it. Finished piece is 24″ x 28″.

Happy quilting

    Thanks. I didn’t get to work on it as much as I wanted too but there is no rush.

  4. I take BH&G but don’t remember seeing this pattern – it’s really a cute one! Have fun with it!

    It wasn’t in a magazine it was one of their books.
