Handkerchief Butterfly Quilt

 About 4 years ago Mom asked me to help her make the butterflies out of old hankies , so I pinned the shapes and then used a blanket stitch around 12 of them ,I had told her I would wait for her to emborider the heads and antlers and then go back and do more ,She waited almost 4 years for me to get back to it we would forget about it each time I went to visit , finally the last time I went I finished the rest, then we added the sashing and squares to it then, the wide boarder.
 Mom will get a yellow backing then ,hand quilt around each one, I can't wait to see it finished now!


  1. This is so beautiful. I love all the different shapes and colors that you have used. It will be worth the wait when finished. Great job.

  2. Thank You Debbie, I love it too , wish I had old hankies like them for myself, I have a few but not enough. I can't wait to see it quilted when Mom gets done with it ,she does her's by hand.
