    They are just so sweet. The embroidered sunbonnet girls are lovely. The nine patches are your typical doll quilts! LOL, Maw and Paw are adorable! You have quite a collection there!

    I had to untie and remove the batting from the Pooh Bear quilt. Batting was all knotted and was a mess. I need to clean the quilt now before putting a new batting in it. Scares me, tho... Hope I don't mess it up!

    Lovely collection. Perhaps you could check out the value of the trunk before restoring. Some old things are better left untouched and there is a better sense of the age. There is a toy/doll house museum in this area and very very few items have been restored. Since the trunk is small having a copy made might be an option.

    Love your quilts. I should try little quilts, they take less room.

    Thanks for sharing
