|wool hooked rug|
As promised I pulled the first doll quilts out of the cupboard.
I'll start with a few - so the post isn't too long.
This precious old one is a favorite.
It's scrappy, pieces within pieces, and who can resist the pink?
The backing is a coarse feed sack woven, and the hand quilting is like a baptist fan.
The little hooked rug is faded - but a sign it was used and loved!
Here's the back.
The muslin sheet is against it so you can see a comparison in the fabric thread count.

I think the maker used scraps from a kit to make this hexagon quilt.
The 'flowers' are a mix of blue and green solids.
Here's another clue it is from kit scraps, faintly I can make out:
Sunshine Quilt Co
It is finished off with a nursery rhyme feed sack backing.
What better use of leftover HST's than a little quilt?
Border fabrics do not have to match!
If you have some HSTs and squares, how about combining them...
they don't have to be the same size!
This one is hand quilted and the colors remind me of taffy.
Fussy cut panels make great little quilts.
This one was tinted, hand appliqued and hand quilted...just not water proof!
Last for this batch, but not least. how about the 1970's?
I love all those dot fabrics all placed together...
I hope you enjoyed this 'turning'
Have a great week!
