Emily's doll quilt







Emily just turned 27. When she was 4, her father made her a doll cradle which we still have in the attic. I made this doll quilt appliqued and embroidered by hand for her cradle. I have quilted the date, 1983, the place, Miami and Love, Mommy in the corners.

Good for you for dating this little quilt! As a quilt historian, I love to find dated and signed doll quilts! They are so rare! It has been exciting to watch Taryn's Red and White on-line gallery grow and such fun visiting each of the contributing bloggers! Karen A. from Quilt History Reports --karenquilt.blogspot.com
