Fun linen things... place-mat's for hot pots!

Besides being a vintage quilt block with a butterfly... it is also a place-mat for a hot pot. I like to find these odd linen things that were intended for one use... and used for another. 

Like these old linen handkerchief's... that were quilted into a place-mat for a hot pot too.  So cute.
I have been using the ones made of handkerchief's forever. And when they are dirty... I just toss them into the washer.

But this butterfly one... is a new addition to the kitchen. 
And it is too cute for words!

What a great way of using up vintage handkerchiefs! Thanks for the idea.
