    That is lovely! I really like the use of the colored background, usually I see these on white backgrounds. I just got started making one of these today, picked up some vintage hankies at an antique store that I just couldn't resist :lol:

    Me too!
    I did post a tute here, just don't know how to post a link to it.

    Thank you for all the great comments ! I will be doing another one, but not right away & not on point since I have 6 blocks of the butterflies on a cream background fabric.

    I have a pattern for a full size quilt using vintage hankies that look very much like yours. I am having trouble finding the hankies. It is a work in progress. Every time I visit an antique mall, I look for them. When I have all 12, then I will start mine.
    Your's is Beautiful! Great job.

    It is. I have a few left over from my pre-Kleenex days. Your quilt is an inspiration! Thanks for sharing.
