Tiny Handmade Doll Quilt

I brought this tiny quilt back with me from my trip to Kentucky. It was a doll quilt that my grandmother made for me when I was a little girl. You can see it’s pretty small!

Handmade Doll Quilt

My grandmother typically hand pieced and hand quilted her quilts, but you can tell this one was built more with quickness of completion and durability in mind. It is made completely by machine except for the binding, which is hand sewn to the back of the quilt.

Not too hard to guess that I was a little girl in the 1970’s, is it?? The colors of these fabrics are a dead giveaway!

  • It’s so adorable! How sweet that your grandmother made this for you, and that your family still has it. I would love to have a treasure like this from some of the women in my family. I actually made a couple quilts similar to this last summer that I use as bathroom rugs.
