    I have sewn for years....but now am trying my luck/patience at sewing quilts...and need help often.

    I'm looking to use my antique hankies in a quilt. I have seen a quilt using them as skirts attached to hand embroidered southern belles. Does anyone have the pattern or know where I can find it?

    welcome from indiana. If the hankies are pretty see through you might put a brighter color behind them and use em as a type of shadow box design. Just an idea :) Welcome to the board, we're glad to have you!

    Welcome from Iowa.

    Have done several wall hangings with hankies - one with baskets with the hankie hanging out - one with overlay of hankies.

    There should be lots of patterns out there and I also like the butterfly ones - very colorful.
