As many of you know, I seem to be drawn to vintage doll beds. I told DH a while back that I wasn't going to buy doll beds any more....but when I see a good deal, I can't seem to help myself! I saw this doll bunk bed set at a garage sale a couple months ago. At first I didn't know what it was. Maybe it was a vegetable bin or other such storage. So I went closer and this is what I saw.
Look at the price tag. $4.00! Wow! So, I asked if it was doll beds and did the price include both of them? Yes! OK. That is sold!
So, the first thing to do is made mattresses and pillows.
Love the ticking fabric.
Next comes sheets and pillowcases. Must add some lace to the pillowcases.
Now, the important part - quilts! I decided to make them pink and blue since those colors are on the lining of the beds. One is blue, one is pink. Maybe the dolls are twins - a boy and a girl.
All ready! The blue quilt turned out much better than the pink one, but I guess they will do. Hope someone needs doll beds for their little girl.
This is the Civil War block of the week. If you go to the blog site, there is some very interesting historical information along with the directions to make the block. I found out that last Friday was the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's inauguration. Very interesting information concerning it.
Happy quilting, everyone!
