|c. 1890s Doll Quilt Detail|
I extend my thanks to each of you for being part of it. Even the things that don't go as planned are learning experiences.
As a little thank you gift this Thanksgiving, and as a token of appreciation, I'm sharing one of my antique doll quilts with you - and the FREE pattern.
We can all do with some little treasured projects.
Fun, sweet and simple - you might like to make more than one!
Last May I bought a set that included a cradle, doll and bedding. It was topped off with a doll quilt. The doll quilt felt like it had something other than batting inside it. I have been lucky in the past to find older quilts inside other quilts. Could I be so lucky this time?
I was!! It wasn't just a cut down - it was a true mini quilt!
The original is hand pieced and hand quilted. I machine pieced and hand quilted mine.
There are two choices.
If you like a mystery DO NOT go to the "Thankful" pattern tab with the photos and complete instructions.
