  1. i found a stack of over 50 vintage hankies for $10 this am wow, when I sorted through them there is enough to make three nice size quilts in three colorways. That said, a few of the light ones need stain removal. Does anyone know the name of the product ypunuse to soak vintage linens. i cannot remember it.

  2. Hi Nancy Jo! Use Retro Clean to soak the hankies. It's not expensive and easy to find. It takes hot water and if there are heavy stains, more than one treatment. Works like a charm! If you haven't seen (Quilting Vintage) on Facebook, join to see lots of projects and advice for backing and stabilizing the hankies for use in quilts. Fun!

  3. I would use a wool batting. I find it more drapeable and softer than any of the cotton varieties I have used. It also is lighter when covering you.

  4. I charge .12 per linear inch to just sew it on one side with my DM, .25 per linear inch if I sew it on and then hand sew it down, so to do it entirely by machine I'd go somewhere in the middle...? I'd rather spend my time either longarming or doing my own quilts so I charged what I thought was more to try and discourage people from asking, I still get one now and then.
