Little antique doll quilt!

Today’s post is just a quickie to share my new little treasure. I couldn’t resist buying this little 20″x21″ cutie. It appears to be hand pieced and is machine quilted with no batting. I don’t think it was cut down because the binding is the same fabric as used in the top. I think it could use a bath so if anyone has expert advice on bathing old fibers please leave me a comment. Below is a photo of the great shirting stripe on the back. Such soft and lovely old colors. I have a special weakness for LeMoyne stars because of a recent event I attended. I’ll be ready to post on that one this weekend. I hope spring is springing where you are!

  1. That's a wonderful quilt!! Excellent find! I'm not sure about the washing of it – perhaps there are suggestions on the internet!

  2. What a wonderful find. I absolutely adore it! LeMoyne stars are also my favourite star. I think I may have to make a little quilt just like it!
