Simple and Elegant this white on white chevron handkerchief came out just as lovely as I pictured when I found the fabric. Perfect for any style wedding or for someone like my husband who "only uses white handkerchiefs". These hankies and many more are for sale in my etsy shop at:

Every quilting book I have read says to baste/ put your safety pins where you will NOT be quilting. This does help so you can keep quilting without having to stop as much to take out pins. However, I notice the safety pins often leave holes, especially in light and solid color fabric such as shown in my photo. What I do to minimize the holes in the fabric that might show, is to put my safety pins right where I WILL be quilting. In a seam such as in the photo works well too. Then when I take out the pin I will sew right over little holes and they will be filled with thread/ quilt stitches and will be less visible.

Mens Handkerchiefs, Great for Teens too!
My 13 year old son had a cold last week so I sent him to school with one of the hankies shown above for a few days. It was easy to fit in his skinny jeans pocket and was ready when he needed it. Since he does his own laundry now I just reminded him to throw them in with his wash. No more tissues for him and another part of a tree saved.
