    You are very lucky. Hankies can be made into beautiful quilts. I wish we could have had my Mom's and Grandmother's but that was not to be...

    What fun! I love old hankies. There are some very clever ways of using hankies in quilts. If you do a search, you can see some of them. Some are butterflies, others baskets, not sure what else. Also the old flowered tablecloths are very much in demand by collectors, especially if they are in good shape. If very stained or holey, they make good throw pillows for shabby chic decor or outdoor furniture. Lots of ways to use them. Do some research, but you'll realize you have a treasure trove!

    16 years ago.... I made a beautiful baby quilt using ladies handkerchiefs for a friend's little girl. I appliqued them onto white fabric and put light batting under each, then hand quilted around the floral patterns. One even had a ballerina on it and found a monogrammed one with the family initial. Used pink between each block and for the backing. Wish I had a digital pic of it. Oh, well...
