    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.

    I found a bunch of references to hankie quilts on this board, sometimes spelled "hankie" sometimes "hanky". There are awesome examples of the butterly quilt!

    The quilt I made is not made from hankies but it could be, I have it posted on the tutorial list under envelope quilt. Hope it can be of some help.

    I forgot to include the name of the book! It is "Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts"' by Cindy Brick.

    Link below shows photos of type of quilt this book will make.

    I have seen the handkerchiefs made into butterflies in a quilt. I also saw the envelope quilt that someone posted yesterday that I thought would make a really pretty hankie quilt.

    What a soft, delicate-looking quilt! I love vintage hankies! They remind me of my Mother (who always had a fresh one in her purse). Do they still even make ladies hankies?

    Just wondering if there is a free pattern to go by for folding the handkerchief?

    They do sell women's hankies but they aren't nearly as nice as the onces we all remember. They are hard, very stiff, even if you wash them a couple times. I think it's inferior quality fabric and some of it is heavy ink printing. Love my old ones I've gotten at yard sales and from my mother. Always keep one in my purse for tears and grandson.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I have seen several with the hankies folded to look like butterflies. I think I searched on hankies butterfly quilts.

    I have a book that has fabulous quilts made out of hankies. Can not sell it, but can hunt down the book and give you the name of it.
