I Am A Hankie Collector!
There, I've said it.
What a Relief!
Even if it is an
Obssesive Compulsive Behavior!
Now If I could only make myself
Do Something With Them!
I do have a plan for the 200+ Hankies. For years I've planned to make a quilt like the one pictured in Grandmother's Favorite Quilts by Sandra L. Hatch. The butterfly pattern calls for only 20 of my Prize Hankies folded in half cross ways. I could do that, but which 20, and I hate to fold them and only see half of the hankie. So Scratch that...for now.
Instead of using 20 hankies, I decided I could part with five hankies. They had a few spots and a couple of holes, and it was eaiser to cut and fold them.
I'm sure the former owners did not blow on these too pretty to blow on hankies.
This is ONE block in a VeryVictorian wall quilt I made back in the 1990's. I'll show you the rest at a later date.
The layered hankies line up next to a row of paper pieced Miniature Spools.
The right row with the pink background features a favorite hankie with 'Mother' embroidered in the corner and surrounded with vintage crocheted and tatted lace....another OCB Collection.
Whew! I'm feeling better with every passing minute and confession.
And now for a 'Pink Hankie Show' and a few Pink Vintage Vases!
There, that's Three OCB Collection Confessions!
There is no way I could cut, fold, sew or quilt on this exquisite Round Rose Hanky! Could You?
So, in my search for
'How To Use Hankies',
I found NanaLuLu's Linen Closet .
There are some wonderful ideas for Vintage Hankies,
and I'm thinking the Round Rose will have to be Framed!
