    I wanted to post some pictures of doll quilts like I collect here today... I love the older quilts that were made for little girls and their dollies and thought you might enjoy seeing some of them and a couple made by a couple of older ladies in my doll club.

    Ann passed away Saturday night, age 94... She lives on in our hearts and in the quilts she made for us...

    Thank you for the information. I looked at the Hand Puppets made by this man... Excellent!

    I see that a quilt of his was sold last year on eBay but I'm having a bit of trouble (#&$Y#& computer) tracking down the sale price.

    Seems he's a book seller now:
    http://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/item/Item.action;jsessionid=p61YV1bX5vtuX7axYAyYlA**.app4-i?id=73800465
    Read the small print on the bottom.

    "He was a very active Board Member of the Surface Design Association in its early days. His batiks were significant in detailed designs and many color changes. He then switched to quilt-making and, together with his doll-maker wife, marketed the products under the studio-name Pea Ridge Purties. Steve is now a full time book seller. "

    Yes, I've done the DQ swap every month since Feb. of this year, and I've sent one little quilt to AAQI. Have another one that is almost done for AAQI. I get bored making lots of things for a large quilt, and then I go off the rails and do something stupid, so I keep doing small things that keep my attention! Would love to see more of your doll quilts!
