Q&A with yankee

angie41179 asked:
love this quilt i am going to make one.
yankee answered:
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.
