I don't have to hit the antique shops, I have a box of them, but didn't want to put the wonder under stuff on the back..

Just beautiful.

Looking at all those beautiful hankies quilted together so lovely...it makes my eyes tear up with joy! What a great way to preserve these little treasures.

I have a bunch of old hankie that a friend gave me. He's 80 and was a seaman from the age of 17, when he retired at 67 he was Manager of the crane dept at Sealand Shipping. He's been all over the word many times. Every trip he would bring a hankie from womewhere back to his mother. There are 2 from pre-Castro Cuba, both are very plain, no print, just the word Cuba stitched in a corner.

Joann. .

Whenever I see your work my jaw drops!!! You are very talented. You really know how to please your customers. Thanks so much for sharing. Especially the detail of how you did the quilt. When I read that marking ect. I just thought, . . . wow that;s it?

Peglu, Another good place to find old hankies is auctions. They are usually stuck in a box with other stuff, cause no one wants them or knows what to do with them. I made my daugthers wedding ring pillow out of old hankies , tatting, and jewlery that were her great grandma's (my and my DH's grandmas) I used the silk material left from her wedding dress that I made for the foundation and the back of the pillow. I will try to post a picture when I get home from work. It turned out very pretty! Love that old stuff!!!!! linda

JoAnn, I have quite a few of my grandmother's hankies and live in a town full of antique shops--where I often see collections of hankies! As everyone else has mentioned--this is beautifully pieced, appliqued and quilted! Prettiest I've ever seen! I'm curious--I have a large number of old linens, doilies, etc.. Has anyone got ideas for how to utilize those in a quilt? Jane

Joann, I forgot to tell you how much I like the way the feathers meet in the middle on each side, That really looks great. I totally agree with your take on that. Gorgeous quilt!
