MY kind of door! Beautiful! Now, why can't I find stuff like this at a store?
Oh, BJ, the hankies aren't really focal points. The ARE the quilt and the smaller ones are made bigger to match the larger ones by using the right size of lace, which I also collect.
Oh dear! Those ruffled ones that you have on your web page would be HORRIBLE to put into a quilt.
BJMOO: I've never in my life made a quilt and this one has pieces that are all different sizes and I'm sewing it by hand. I haven't yet decided on the padding color but I think I may use one of my vintage blankets, then match that for the back.
I started sewing my hankies together to make a curtain for my book cabinet so that my books didn't fade or get dusty. Since the hankies are all different sizes I put my lace remnants between them as needed. The curtain got too big so I decided to add more to use as a curtain for my sliding glass doors. Now I'm thinking of putting a plain colored piece of material under the curtain, then batting, then another piece of material and quilting it together. Since I don't know how to use a machine and I take comfort in needlework, I will quilt it by hand if I live long enough.
I love old hankies! Thank was some of the things that was saved for me when my mom died when I was 10. They were in two little boxes, one a little wooden one with a clasp, and the other is a flowered candy tin. She died in 1955 ( I am telling my age!). I would keep them closed, but every so often I would open one and I could smell a special fragrance that I would remember! I still cherish these so much! What I like to find when I am scrounging are childrens hankies. It is so much fun when I find one! The thrill is in the hunt gals!
It's Palm Sunday, hooray! Hosannah!
