    During WW11 my mother and friends would get together once a week for a pot luck and do hand work. I am fortunate to have her dresser scarves, chair covers, etc., and would like to put them in a memory quilt. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Can't wait to see any answers you get cuz I have the same thing. I use a few of them and the rest are in totes.

    I once saw a beautiful quilt on which these items were appliqued on a solid (or near solid) backing of a complimentary color. Each item was first stitched on around the edge or near the edge (crocheted edging was left loose for a "rag-edge look") then quilting was done inside the appliqued item and on the background material to make the handwork stand out. Just have to play with the placement of the items to get the overall look you want to have.
