1870's Doll Quilt
Here is a sweet little quilt that we found Monday at an antique show. It is nicely hand pieced, but the machine quilting got a little strange. It caused the quilt to get very wonky. The quilt is on a black felt covered board that I just made. It is for taking photos of my miniatures and we just pinned this little quilt to it. Needless to say, the rectangular felt covered board is very close to perfectly true. You can see how much the quilt varies on the left side. It is also showing lots of wear, but then a doll quilt should. I like to think that some little girl played with this little quilt and her doll a lot. I love the fabrics in this quilt and is there anything sweeter than a nine-patch block? I don't think so.
Till next time............
