I went to a lecture by Didi Salvatierra, fabric artist, last night here in NJ.  She particularly focussed on borders and how to make them fun to do (and NOT boring.)  She is very creative which translates to "I came away with a lifetime of ideas."

While at the meeting I bought her pattern "Hanna's Hankie" and I now need an old hankie with 4 interesting corners.  I thought I had one of my grandmother's creations, but I find I do not.  I gave them to daughters and nieces as they married.

Does anyone have any ideas?

thank you!

PS  I'd be happy to receive a donation of a hankie.  I want to make the wall hanging twice - once for my 90 year old Mom and once for her 96 year old cousin.

I never thought of that.  I guess since I only shop at tack shops and quilt stores unless I need groceries, my shopping "view" of the world is limited.  <grin>

I will have to find some local antique stores.  THANKS!

Hi Diane, WhenI collected hankies for butterfly quilts, I went to Antique stores, and I also shopped on EBay. I got a lot of unique beautiful hankies , that didn't cost a fortune.  Look on eBay.    But be careful,you will want them all!!

Excellent idea.  I only need (!) two hankies for the projects.  Meanwhile, the baby quilt is coming along and I cut out a second baby quilt last night.

Although we are not close to Amish country we do occasionally go to Lancaster PA for dry goods and supplies.  I'm going to watch for hankies next time we go out that way.  We haven't been in over a year because my husband had a massive "heart event" that included 40 minutes of being dead then coming back to me.  He still isn't ready for a longish car trip.  I have other quilts to work on, but I do want to get the hankies done for the 90+ ladies in my life.

Thank you for your suggestion.

I will upload a picture when I am finished.  Meanwhile, the baby quilt is coming along and I cut out the second baby quilt.  Since this is all new to me I'm probably doing things more slowly than experienced piecers, but I'm having fun.  I've found I especially like piecing the backs of quilts - thinking, of course, that if the baby soils the front the back will be interesting.
