    This is just beautiful. And to the lady that doesn't want to cut
    them, I saw a pattern with for a quilt in a QUILTING NEWLETTER MAGAZINE THAT INTAILED FOLDING the hankies
    so they fit on a plain colored fabric and it was just beautiful.
    They were folded so they looked like butterflies.

    Good luck

    How beautifully creative you are. One may be able to just fold the hankies instead of cutting them, but either way it is a lovely, lovely quilt. So glad you shared them with us.

    Oh, my, you are inspiring me. I have the hankies collected, but never started yet.... thanks for sharing. Once your auntie sees these beauties, well, she may just change her mind, or, maybe you two could go to an antique store and purchase some for her hankie quilt, that way... no sentimental value, and you are free to cut.

    I can see why your Aunt might not want to have them cut up, but show her the two quilts that you made and I'll bet she's sorry that she didn't give you hers...Naomi... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Yes, I agree. The thought of cutting these little works of art pains me...but someday I'll do it. These quilts are beautiful.

    Both of them are stunning! Definately will bookmark site and refer to it when I start to 'deal' with my own stash of grandma's hankies. Not sure if I can cut them though. It took me almost a week to start cutting pictures for scrapbook pages of our trip to Israel, lol. You are a very gifted and creative quilter.
