    I am looking also. Did not find one in "Search". There is a book out by they are selling it for $31 - a bit too steep for me.

    I want to make one of these too. I saw one made up a quilt show last spring. I don't want to spend $31 on a book either. I may just wing it!

    There is a wonderful hankie quilt that uses them to make butterflies in a book called Antique Quilts Recreated

    A Leisure Arts book by House of White Birches. It is called Mother's Handkerchiefs by Norma Pfister.

    It is terrific! I found this which is the same as the book. $4.99

    LEEANN: Love your quilt!

    I made a few of the blocks but didn't have enough handkerchiefs for a whole quilt. It is very easy to do and looks like you would have taken forever making it! If you have a supply of them great 'cause hankies are getting expensive around here. You can pay up to $6.00 each. A few years ago you coouldn't give them away. Good luck with this project. I only wish I had a handkerchief supply to share.
