I see from other blogs that their has been a lot of talk about doll quilts lately so I thought I would show you the only antique one I have- but it does have a little surprise.
I bought this little cot/doll quilt along with three other full size quilts when I was in Florida in January 2005.
We had driven up to Mt Dora to the Antiques & Collectors Extravaganza. Rennigers . I found this little quilt in a wooden crib. The dealer wanted to sell the crib to me as well, but as I couldn't carry a crib back to the UK we struck a deal and I just bought the quilt. It was a lovely little crib, I hope it found a good home eventually.
The top has late 1800's fabrics but a 1930's feedsack border. When you turn it over it is all feedsack.It has no batting in it. So what do you think happened? I guess someone took pity on the original top and decided to recycle it in the 30's.
I like it because of its naivety. Whats your thoughts?
