    My mom made this doll quilt for one of my older sisters. It is at least 60 years old.
    I played with it when I was little with my dolls and it was given to me about 15 years ago. It proudly hangs from quilt shelf in my sewing room.
    The size is 23 x 23.
    Thought I would post this since Chele is hosting a doll quilt swap. It is made out of flour sack material and has a flannel backing.

    I have always loved this doll quilt!!

    Really pretty. I still have some of my grandmothers feed sacks still in one piece. I keep thinking I should do something with them, but hate to cut them up.

    Thanks ladies, I'm really surprised it has stayed in such great shape over the years. It has gone through the washer so many times.. It is one of my favorites.
