    Hi, a newcomer from snowy Iowa! I've been reading this site with great interest, learned a lot, and enjoyed your discussions.

    I wonder if any of you have a hanky quilt pattern, made one, hints, etc. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi there, at the top of the forum there is a search feature. Just type in hankie & you can see any of the previous postings about this as well.

    What part of Iowa do you live in? I live in snowy Iowa too. We are expecting another big storm starting at midnight and going through Monday.

    Thanks, I'll search the Forum.
    I live on a farm in South West Iowa; just had 4" of snow and am expecting more through tomorrow!

    Not sure exactly what you are looking for. I have a pattern called Tea Baskets. Its from the book, Tea party Time, by Nancy Martin. In her pattern the handkerchief is the basket, which is sewed onto a block. If your interested just let me know. I can copy it and send it to you.

    I've seen a couple of hanky patterns that look like the hankies are sewn on the quilt top. I don't think these used sashing, not sure. Anyone done one of these?

    wow those are nice ones in the link you added! One of the out of town quilt shops I go to has an old quilt hanging up with old hankies on it .... they are appliqued on to it in the shape of butterflies. If I remember next time I go there I will take a picture and post it for you, it is very pretty.
