I'm Talking Tiny


Ahhh FRIDAY...it is like having an itch scratched in ways, right? 
I'm joining Friday Pretties today in celebration!

These tiny doll quilts are pretty to me today. 
The one on the left is postage stamp size squares and it was found at a flea market. 
My mother made the one on the right :) 

This antique doll cradle is waiting *I guess* for a future grand child of the female sort.  Girls ...do they play dolls anymore? 

Doll quilts are simple, fast and fun with NO RULES! 

I'm suggesting that we all grab a girl...sit down and stitch a wee quilt and pass on a cute little skill while showing some love :) 
I'd LOVE to see any miniature quilts you have...do you? 
Shall I host a show?

Those little quilts are adorable. The one your mom made looks very intricate. You should have a doll quilt blog party. We could all make one by a certain date. It would give me a reason to get my sewing machine back out.

I love quilts --even tiny ones, Phyllis, but I'm no quilter... I would enjoy it if you sponsored a Miniature Quilt Show though.....

One of these days---you may get a granddaughter...

Have a nice weekend.

Betsy

I don't have little girls any more :>( but a teeny quilt might be fun. Yours are adorable. By the way, your hubbylicious photo is adorable and it made me laugh. I like that word:>)

see you there! said...

Host a party and I'll come. I don't have any doll quilts so I can't participate but I'm a great appreciator :-)
