    I have a book, "Handkerchief Quilts" by Pat Long Gardner that has some neat projects. I believe it is out of print but you can find it on Amazon. I've also seen some cute little girls' quilts made with folded, frilly handkerchiefs for some of the blocks. I'm sure someone would know what I mean and have a link.

    Here is a Valentine's Day quilt I saw at the Smithtown Stitchers show made out of vintage hankies. I love it.
