    Unfortunately I have lost both my parents and they both used hankies which I have and would like to work into a quilt in honor of both of them. Any ideas that you could give me would be most helpful or link to patterns. Thank you follow quilters. LOVE this web site. Warm Hugs Pam

    Hi,

    A crazy quilt would be cool to make with the hankies. Also do you have any clothes from them that you could cut up to make a quilt. I still have my grandma's night gown hanging in my closet. She was the coolest grandma and made lots of crafts. I sure miss her. I would go and stay with her on a Friday night and come home late on Sunday. We would make crafts together.

    Also would be cool to transfer photos of them to fabric for a memory quilt.

    I just did a search and found a cool quilt photo to show you about hankies. Scroll down and you will see it.

    Just do a search on hankies quilt and tons of links comes up.
