Doll quilt

My dear friend grew up playing with this little doll quilt.
I imagine it was made in the early 70s.
Its construction is very basic.
It's just two layers of fabric.
No batting at all.

She brought it over to have a seam re-sewn.
A SUPER simple fix.
;)

She has some WONDERFUL memories of using this quilt
in her childhood as she played with dolls.
 
Made me realize that doll quilts have a special place
in little girls hearts!!!
It Made me think I should make some!!!
Yes....
It Made me want to make ANOTHER QUILT!!

  3. Oh how cute is that! What is it tied with?
    So why not make a doll quilt or two and have a swap with a bunch of us?
    I love making little doll quilts and my granddaughter has so many already :0).

    Happy Sewing

    1. Quilt is tied with yarn. After the years of love, they resemble little red and blue pieces of popcorn! ;)
