Have you ever made a seven pointed star?
It was a first for me - I enjoyed it and I think you might too.
The original vintage quilt was found at a local antiques shop. Too sweet to pass up and not share with you.
The little bear has lost all most all of his mohair...and ears!
Shoe button eyes are a little loose.
She has lace trimmed sleeves and a plaid scarf - it is cold here.
The dolly is a printed/sewn panel, slight glaze remains - she is straw stuffed.
They love their bed, covered in bedding.
The bed headboard has the maker "Amsco"
with a decal "Doll-E-Bed"
The company made several styles of doll beds, many available online and antique shops. Just in case you want a little bed to go with a quilt you might make.
The bed is on wheels.
Maybe for doll bed races?
Ease of redecorating your room?
I keep mine in my sewing studio.
On the foot of the bed is a little one patch all hand sewn in flannel squares. The little gem is hand tied in colored pearl cotton.
There are a variety of flannels in the quilt.
Possibly left overs from previous sewing projects.
Starry Hearts has several quirky features:
|French Knots embroidered at the center and tips|
|A blanket piece was used as batting|
|Running Stitch Applique|
None of the four hearts match
Squares are stitched on top of the background fabric
Thank you for your support and encouragement over the many years we've been here!
