    Tartan, I did stitch the hankies to white flannel.....the white flannel I used in place of batting.....making a sandwich of hankies stitched to white flannel & then stitched to pink polka dot flannel for the backing.....when making a rag quilt ...you sandwich all your pieces....& then sew all the squares together & then the rows together to complete the quilt!

    The gal I made this for bought the hankies on E-bay.....I think about 25 for $25.00......we had been collecting them from flea markets...but was getting expensive, some were too thin, some were stained....these bought on EBay were new....I washed & ironed them before beginning to put all together!

    What a beautiful quilt with a cottage-like look and feel. I, too, have collected hankies for quilting but have yet to decide what to do with them and this quilt is quite inspiring. I absolutely love the hankie envelope label and the fact that it can be buttoned closed. Great job and thanks for sharing.

    I like the suggestion about looking on ebay for hankies, no great deals today though. What size is your quilt? I see you used 30 handkerchiefs.

    A catalogue called Starcrest of California has hankies 12 for $5.00. I also have been collecting hankies for years from estate sales. This is a great idea for them. I still use some from my mother whom passed away in 1999. This is a picture from their catalogue. the order number /stock # is 24-26323-8. Beautiful quilt by the way.

    My grand mother used to have hankies like these all over her home! I ended up with a sack full of doilies! Great idea for them too! I love yours
