    That is beautiful and thank you, if you don't mind I'd love to use your idea of appliquing them flat. I've got some wonderful hankies (I was going to do a butterfly quilt with them) but some them just don't lend themselves to being folded into the butterfly thing. Maybe I'll do a combination of the two.
