    Thanks for allowing me to join. I have read and enjoyed the site for a while. I would like to make a quilt top with old hankies/doilies. I think I have seen one some where. Thanks for any help.

    I have old handkerchiefs of my great aunts. Never thought about using them in this way until I joined this forum. Now I need to think harder! lol
