Antique-Vintage Doll Quilts
Antique or vintage doll and small size quilts have gained popularity in recent years due to the scale of the pattern and availability. They also take up less room when storing or displaying. They are sometimes crudely made as it may have been the child's first venture into sewing. The child may have had a loved doll in which they were making this special bed cover. Sometimes a mother was making a large quilt and the child may have been using the left over fabric scraps of calico or shirting for the small quilt. Many were probably used, worn out and tossed as the child got older, so they are not as common as large quilts. Provenance is great to have when purchasing a quilt, whether it is a child's or regular bed quilt.
This is one charming doll or small crib sized quilt, size 19x25, called a 9 Patch on Point quilt. Note the neat double border of pink and green and the pink hand stitched binding. All hand quilted at 7-8 spi. The condition is excellent and it is clean. The backing is a nice shade of yellow. These nice pieced doll quilts don't come around often in this condition. Displays well too.
