I went to an amazing estate sale last week. I really just wanted to see the massive historic house, but I also found this treasure.
It doesn’t have any batting. It appears to have been tied at one time.
All the work was done by machine. The backing was pulled to the front to bind the sides.
And the front borders on the top and bottom were pulled to the back. Quite curious!
I don’t think this was ever used. It may have been intended a large doll quilt. There was a huge collection of vintage dolls, doll accessories etc. The house had been in the same family since it was built one hundred years ago. The toys were owned by children that grew up there.
This humble quilt didn’t seem to fit the grandeur of the house which made me think it was for a large doll bed rather than a child of the family.
The house is going up for sale and I’d love to buy it! But I’m not sure I fit the house either. 😆
Have a great day!
