    I hope everyone can understand the direction. I have writen
    the on the pictures.

    Note : You can make the tail area narrower by making the fold deeper.
    You can also applique them in a random display on a large background instead of doing the sereate blocks.

    I have been all over the internet trying to find this very thing. Thank you, thank you. I have a collection of MIL and grandmother hankies that I want to turn into a quilt for my SIL with enough for me, too. You were an answer to an unfruitful search. Thank you.

    Thank you!
    I have been saving hankies just for this. After all the steps are done, do you embroider the antenna on?
    thanks again

    I am happy to help. I know there is a different one, but have not figured out how to fold. The one I did was the only I had seen years ago.
