Today: A sweet doll quilt, held here by my son's favorite Teddy bear. And I took this picture before I looked at ColoradoLady's blog! I guess it was meant to be.
Four blocks by four blocks in size, each block is a random log cabin block, with strings being added outward from the center. Many of the fabrics are feedsack, and they are faded. The solid peach colored fabric is not. I think it is pieced by machine.
There is batting of some sort, and a feedsack backing. I know, because I have the same feedsack in a different color. The quilt is tied by a sturdy pink string in the middle of each block only. The batting is not lumpy, which makes me think this doll quilt has not been washed, or not often, or else the batting would bunch up. The edges are turned in (knife edge finish) and there is no binding.
I found this in an Ohio Antiques shop some years ago. Some little girl must have loved its soft colors. I would guess it is from the 1940's or so.
