They are probably vintage, saved and collected over time

I have a book with pages and pages of the vintage handkerchiefs. Perhaps they could be printed on fabric and made into quilt pieces.

Similar handkerchiefs can be found on Amazon.com

In 1962 my sister starred buying me a pretty handkerchief for every dance I went to, pageant I was in, birthdays, wedding day, first child.... I still have every one. What a beautiful idea she had and this quilt is!!

The post on the Pinterest link shown above takes you right back here. Has anyone had any luck finding a pattern for this quilt? I found a stash of hankies last January when going through my mother's things following her death. Some belonged to my grandmothers. I also have some from my husband's mother and grandmothers that I would love to put into a quilt like this.

Did anyone ever find a pattern for this hankie quilt? This is so lovely and the best one I have seen to use old hankies. Please let me know if you come across a pattern.
