I got some great news today from Cindy Brick, author of Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts and a well-known appraiser and quilt restoration expert. You may recognize her name as the idea source behind A Little Hanky Panky, an article about how to make quilts from vintage hankies in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Quiltmaker, being shipped now.
This little gem of a book has been out of print for a long while, but now it’s back in limited quantities. You can read all about it and how to get it at cindybrick.com. The price is right and the shipping is free!
What’s even better, if that is possible, is that Cindy’s next book will be Hanky Panky with a Flourish, due out this spring. This new collection of handkerchief quilt patterns includes the traditional Hanky Panky method, plus many hanky-related patterns that don’t require cutting the handkerchiefs.
So check out Cindy’s first and soon-to-come second book, and take a peek at QM’s Jan/Feb issue to get started on your own Hanky Panky quilts.
