I ran across this tutorial and just had to give it a try. I think it's so sweet! It is a small blanket for a new baby made with vintage sheets and vintage hankies. I just happened to have those items on hand. It only took a few hours.
Here is a closer view of one of the 4 blocks:
I tied in the center of each hankie square with embroidery cotton, and the "batting" used between the layers of the blanket is a scrap of white terry cloth I had laying around.
I love it when I can make something almost "free."
