What materials did you use? This was made by using applique to place the old-time ladies handkerchiefs on a block background. Handquilted it with a stipling design.

Thank you so much for showing me the quilt. I have all of my grandmothers hankies and have been looking for a butterfly quilt to make them with for many years. This might be the one!

So glad you like it. My oldest daughter, in Maine, now owns it. It took me awhile to accumulate all the hankies but it was worth it. the hankies are folder into the butterfly shape. I found the pattern in one of my books. If you would like the name of the book, email me and I will send it to you. dorothyeman@windstream.net Thanks again for the compliment. I just finished handquilting a smaller quilt titled "forever friends" and it came out very nice.
