While beautiful for a baby (especially made as a crib quilt set), this would be beautiful for anyone. It has that very old fashioned look of made by Grandma. I will have to find some of these, I really would like this as a bed covering for my own bed. I think for an adult, a larger print and for a baby print with very small flowers and maybe a soft flannel back. There is no question this is on my must make list. I, too, would be interested in knowing where to find these hankies.

I love this pattern! I bought a few hankies at a yard sale a few years ago but haven't come across any since. I'd love to try to make this but need many more hankies. Does anyone have a place online where they order them from? Also, does anyone use a light weight stabilizer on the backs of them for stability during stitching?

Ebay is a wonderful place to buy them at reasonable prices. Also you would be surprised how many you find at the thrift stores in the linen department area for next to nothing.
