DOLL QUILT

In my March 31 post I showed this doll bed that a friend gave to me (actually, she forced me to take it). Have you seen the foam mattress pads that have the bumps all over them?  I think it is supposed to make an uncomfortable bed comfortable.  We had an old one - it came with our first camper and we never used it.  Well, that's what I used to make the doll bed mattress.  I just cut it to size and then cut off the bumps the best that I could.  The smooth side will be up, but the uneven underside doesn't look or feel bad once the mattress cover is on.  I still haven't covered the mattress or made the sheet for it, so I thought I would show you what it looks like.


Today, I finished the quilt top that I will be using for the doll bed, so I put it on the doll bed to show you what it will look like.  I guess I forgot to take a picture of the whole quilt top - you can't see the border at all in these pictures.  I am going to hand quilt it.


Here it is with the doll on top of it.


I think I saw this idea on someone else's blog, but I am going to use this tea towel as the "top" sheet.  I really like the way it looks.


Oh, BTW, I have added a few things to my secret blog.

That is a very sweet doll quilt, and the tea towel with the pretty edging looks perfect as a doll sheet.

It's so sweet and I love that itty bitty quilt. Dolly will get a good night's rest in that comfy wee bed.

I've always liked the orange peel quilt and it looks so right with the tea towel edging!

Secret blog, hmm? Is that a teaser? Looking forward to hearing about it!
