    Lovely! I have a bunch of antique hankies with the tatted or crochet trim. I plan to make a quuilt that does not require cutting them up, but folding them like a butterfly.

    What a great use for those hankies! You've created a family heirloom that has a history of its own, and it's gorgeous! Well done!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH it makes me think of my grandmother and how she tucked her hankies in her sleeve or elsewhere. LOL She had such beautiful hankies. Now I wish I had more than the few I kept from when I was a child. That is a gorgeous way to display them for an era gone by.

    Did she change her mind after seeing what a beautiful job you did of preserving the treasures for all to enjoy?? I sure would have. No use keeping it folded and hidden away when it could shine like these beauties do. Congratulations on a terrific job. Wish I had some to share with you.
    Blessings.

    I wanted to say thank you everyone so very, very much for all your lovely comments. I appreciate them all so much!!

    My Aunt loved the quilts once they were made but still didn't agree with cutting them up.

    I did feel as if I were creating an heirloom... the hankies were already heirloom to me so I simply arranged them so they could be enjoyed everyday instead of tucked away.

    Again, the book is: Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts by Cindy Brick

    Thank you again!

    I inherited several beautiful hankies from my grandmother. They are way too beautiful to actually use (can you imagine blowing your nose on these?). I have always cherished them and now I know what to do with them to keep them safe and still be able to appreciate them. I also have one from a great aunt that is so fragile I never even open it. I wonder if I could make it into a wall hanging?

    Your quilts are beautiful. I took a class at the Road to CA show this last Jan. from Cindy Brick. She is a great teacher. I made a "Hanky Panky" quilt in the class that I just love.
