If they are going to be 'nestled' then it should be in a quilt!
This is a doll's sleigh bed I got in 1984, it has a matching armoire. The pieces are signed 'Bill Pitts'.
I have a picture of each of my kids as infants on it. They also played with it through the years.
I decided it needed new bedding.
|15" x 18" excluding the ruffle|
I have several quilts for the bed - but this is the most recent.
I added the pillow case after I saw Ann's collection.
If you haven't already, spend some time reading Ann Hermes blog, Notes From The Quilt Lab. HERE
She has an amazing collection of antique/vintage pieced pillow cases. Shared at AQSG this year, her collection is beautiful. You'll also find some of her ongoing research and documentation. I've posted about Ann's designs HERE when I showed another picture of my gallery wall with one of her designs.
I'll be adding more to the pillowcase after the holidays.
I'll also make some more to go with the older doll quilts in my collection.
The center is an 9" applique block surrounded with fussy cut borders. To get the longer rectangle I wanted I added a couple rows of HST's.
It is hand applique and hand quilted. All of the piecing is by machine.
The ruffled border is only on the long sides. The ruffle is incorporated in the binding.
Another edge finish option...

Hope you are "nestled all snug up" this holiday season!
