Question about using hankies for quilt.
A friend gave me quite a large stack of her mothers hand embroidered handkerchiefs, and some pretty cotton material. she asked me to make her a quilt as a keepsake, as her mother passed on. My question is this. The handkerchiefs while in good condition and very pretty... are very thin. would it be good to use a stabilizer fabric (maybe an iron on) on the back of them before attempting to put them in a quilt? I don't want to ruin them, but I also don't want to make the quilt so delicate she cant display it either. Thank you for your help.
