    I have a collection of bandanas. All colors, all different themes. I thought they would look cool in a quilt...anybody have or seen pics of such a quilt?

    I have one, store made by Dockers. The sashing is denim colored fabric. I like it as it is very cheery and goes with a multiude of bedroom themes, (casual, kitch, juvenile, country , western,) I bought a bundle of bandanas off Ebay and used those for a valance. The left over bandanas I used as napkins, they go good with my Fiestaware.

    Years ago I saw one where they just sewed the bandanas together. Knowing what I know now, I am not sure how well it would hold up :roll: LOL Maybe stabilzer behind it to reinforce the fabric ? They use like any other fabric .

    I would use them in a quilt like Maggie-Sue's or like Sharon said, back them with a fusible interfacing first :D:D:D

    I have about 20-25 I have been collecting for a future project (not yet determined). I like the denim circle idea. I have one like that about 1/3 done using I spy types and mixed backs. I started it when I was laid up and have not returned to it. I think I would like to try the bandana one, but would prefer something besides denim. Any ideas?

    My mil just asked me the other day if I wanted the ones from when she gets her dog clipped - the groomer cannot - for sanitary reasons - take them back even though she washes them - so I will have some soon!

    That is way to cool :thumbup: you can buy the bandanas for $1.00 and they are 100% Cotton. You are making me think Bandanas, bandanas, bandanas.

    My mom had made oodles of bandana quilts for my 'working cowboy' Utah brother. If I get pics someday, I will post them. You'll love them.

    Who would have thought that so many things could be made from bandanas. Thanks for sharing this site. I bookmarked it.

    Be careful about buying bandanas! They used to be sturdy and useful giant "hankies" that would keep out dust and could be used for just about anything. Now days bandanas are "cute". They are smaller and much, much thinner. You can still get the old style, but you have to look for them. Perhaps western shops, or work clothes specialty shops. I grew up on a cattle ranch and we used bandanas for handkies, dust covers for our faces, hotpads at campfires, as wash cloths and towels, for dishes and our own bodies. (I'm not saying we used one for all of these, but these were some of the purposes of the sturdy bandanas.)

    That is so true. The original bandanas were made in the USA and now come from China, huge difference. You best best is to shop around. Maybe the jeans company made the original ones.

    I made one using cheap Walmart bandanas, so I could practice my FMQ on it. It is has become a family favorite.
