DWMonday ~ Madders

I’m participating in another doll quilt swap (sorry, sign ups are closed). I’ve been trolling the interwebs looking at antique doll quilts for ideas. Then I saw this post on Barbara Brackman’s blog, Material Culture, about madder prints. It reminded me that I had this repro cheater print in my stash.

Here is the selvedge info.

She also shared this gem on her post.

I’ve been wanting to use that cheater print as a small quilt back and it would be perfect for a quilt like the one above. These prints are not all madder prints, but I think they will work.

I’ll do some more digging in the stash before I start cutting.

Have a great day!
