*Item is SOLD! Thanks so much.* I love how this quilt turned out and I'm hoping you love it as well! Perfect to display on a wall, table, blanket chest, or tucked in with a cloth doll in an old doll bed or bowl. The quilt features a center patchwork star that has been primly stitched with the year "1893". A quilting stitch done entirely by my hand, covers the entire quilt and can be seen on the back as well. The fabric on the back of the quilt is an 1800's reproduction light brown fabric and is wrapped around to the front to form the quilt binding. The center star patch is surrounded by rows of blue and brown squares, sewn in perfectly primitive rows, meaning not sewn entirely straight with just enough character to make it charmingly sweet. The front of the quilt is sewn from an assortment of blue and brown 1800's reproduction fabric. This doll quilt is larger than the others I have offered in the past. It measures 18 x 11.5". The selling price includes shipping. Kindly asking $110.

I'm happy to be offering this sweet little doll quilt with four appliqued hearts in the center surrounded by red and brown fabrics set in rows and squares. It features everything that makes a doll quilt so irresistible! I love the way quilts bunch up around all the quilting stitches so that's what I aim for in my handmade doll quilts. All the visible stitching is done by hand with cotton thread. And there is lots of stitching on this one! Observe in the photos that the quilting stitches cause the surrounding fabric to crinkle up on itself. I love that about these endearing little quilts. The fabrics have been aged with an over-dye and several frayed pin pricks and worn spots. The backing fabric is brought to the front to form the binding which is a common finish from the 1800's. Please click through the photos to view close ups. Measures 15 x 12". Price includes travel fare. Your purchase will be tenderly packaged and ready for delivery as soon as payment is received. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Blue triangles dance across this primitive quilt on a field of plain vintage feed sack. All the visible stitching is done by hand with cotton thread and the quilting covers the entire quilt, so lots of awesome primitive stitches to be enjoyed. The entire doll quilt features details that make it feel as if it was just uncovered from a long lost trunk in the attic. Features include: uneven hand stitching as though done by a young school girl rather than accomplished quilter, over dyed reproduction blue fabric and vintage feed sack, the striped shirting fabric on the back wraps around to the front to form the binding as typically done in the 1800's, frayed pin pricks, and an uneven set to the individual blocks. In other words, perfectly prim! Observe in the photos that the quilting stitches cause the surrounding fabric to crinkle up on itself. I love that about these endearing little quilts. Measures 10 x 12 inches. Price includes travel fare. This precious quilt will be wrapped and ready to be delivered as soon as payment is received. Thank you for stopping by!
