Classic Handkerchief Quilts

Posted on Category:Clothing Leave a comment

I am happy for the friends and family that I have, consisting of a special household, the Buck Household. I consider myself an ‘adopted’ daughter to the Buck household. Mr. Buck had his 80th Birthday in 2014, and he is a proud Navy male. I so occurred to have a classic handkerchief that I believed was ideal for him, and constructed all the anchors and trims that I could locate for his Birthday celebration quilt. Below is what I sent to get here within a couple of days of his birthday celebration.

Yet you understand me … I felt it still required “extra,” so I asked to have it went back to me for added job. Last week my other half Dave and also I were going to invest a couple of day of rests with the Bucks in North Carolina, so finishing Mr. Buck’s quilt increased to the top of my to do stack and inspired me to look at my various other vintage scarfs. Vintage hankies resemble potato chips– you can’t simply have one!

Envisioned over is a deep drawer where all my washed and also ironed vintage hankies are stored.

Both circular bandanas imagined above originated from my Grandma’s stockpile.

And also when family and friends learn you enjoy classic hankies …

… you are the recipient of some beautiful surprises. I like these cards! (Click the image above for a bigger view of these handkerchief dolls.).

With my passion rekindled from the added job I did on Mr. Buck’s patchwork, I selected 3 classic hankies (envisioned below) from my collection to function in brand-new patchworks.

I enjoy the colors and information of these bandanas! In this uploading I will certainly offer you some concepts as well as suggestions on just how I created one of these art patchworks, as well as in future blog site postings will certainly update the others.

First step is to select a background and orientation. I’m collaborating with some green hand colored cotton as well as the appealing wine red fallen leave square within a square handkerchief.

The above design can work, however …

Listed below you can see that I have actually added a 3-inch candy striped border. I have deliberately let the handkerchief “creep” right into the border, however keep in mind that as of this point the hankie has not been sewn to the eco-friendly hand-dyed textile. Following I will set up the patchwork sandwich, with the hankie pinned in place.

I made a decision to quilt the entire hand dyed environment-friendly location, and looked to 365 Free Movement Quilting Styles by Leah Day for motivation.

I choose her style # 150, Weird Fallen leave, imagined over. I practiced the direction that my needle would certainly pass drawing on paper, and then jumped in. My fallen leave remained in fact strange … as well as bit more like a heart than a leaf!

As you can see above, I really folded up as well as pinned the hankie out of the way, and also complimentary movement quilted the history eco-friendly material in areas. The factor I do this is to maintain the history laying level as well as not too puffy when I stitch the hankie at the end.

Above is the quilt up until now (larger view). I sewed around the acorns that are published in the center of the hankie, along the pink “ribbon,” and also the outside side of the handkerchief. Then I added the binding. At this moment, several would take into consideration the quilt done. I am unsure … I think that it needs some decoration.

I will certainly compose more regarding other Vintage Hankie Quilts as well as flaunt my additional service Mr. Dollar’s patchwork in future posts. Remain tuned!
