It's shameless commerce Tuesday. Today I'm featuring my newest listing, a 12.5" x 14" doll quilt made from late 19th Century reproduction fabrics. The small-scale prints in shades of pink, brown, cream and red worked well for a doll-sized quilt. I started this little quilt as a class project in a Marvelous Miniatures class taught by Dr. Barbara Caron of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, and finally got it tied and bound. Each tiny square in the 9-patch blocks finishes at only 1/2".
This miniature quilt would be perfect for a baby doll. It would be a perfect little gift for a special girl, or it could be used as a wall hanging, or to accessorize an antique doll bed or cradle.
When hanging miniature quilts, I use two pins, inserted at the intersection of the binding and the quilt in the top two corners. The pins are barely visible, but are strong enough to hold a small quilt, and you have only tiny pinpricks in your wall.
Custom orders are welcome. I'd be happy to make doll quilts in other sizes or colors. Heaven knows I have LOTS of scraps!
