    I have these blocks I did a few years ago that are to go on point. I no longer have background fabric for either set. There are 5 in each set.
    They are appliqued hankies, suppose to look like butterflies, I think they look a little like birds

    One idea - if they were mine, I'd pick my favorite color in the set and use that in a solid for the backing. After all, isn't the unique front the most important side? It will be a wonderful quilt!

    If you add the antenna to the butterflies they will look totally different! I think I would put setting strips of a soft floral between them. They will make a lovely quilt! :thumbup: :D

    Love the old hankies! I'm sure whatever you do it will be lovely.

    Thank you all !! I will most likely put annte on ,but I want to figure out what to use for the sides & corner triangles since I no longer have the fabric I had used for the blocks. It was most likely used in another project or quilt.

    These are beautiful. I just recently bought hankies to make my daughter a butterfly quilt. I think yo did a great job. I am going to just put mine at random on a top and add some material with flowers that butterflies like.

    I found this site with the butterflies going in different directions. Thought maybe it could be an idea.

    Thank you Sewcrafty !! I did check out the site & bookmarked it, so in a few weeks when I get ready to work on these I can go back for reference.
    I also found a few more hankies, so I may try the other folding too.
