Sister Babydoll Quilts

We have two granddaughters–sisters and daughters of Second Son and his good wife. They are 4-1/2 and nearly 2.

They NEEDED a matching-because-we’re-sisters Christmas gift.

Babydoll quilts are perfect.

These were made from some vintage (somewhere between 1980 and 1990) wall hanging “cheater” panels that came in a hand-me-down bag.  I added simple machine quilting and a binding.

It all goes in the mail on today.

  1. Oh how fun…..I made that same Angel quilt this year. Found the panel when I had to pack up my basement for the remodeling. It has been around a long time….but now it is finished and found a new home.

  2. Love them! I’ve made a baby doll quilt for each of our granddaughters (4)….they are cherished by all of them. Merry Christmas!

  3. I recognize that fabric. It might have been from Little Quilts, which just closed down last year in Marietta, GA. Those are going to be warm and cute baby dolls the girls have!

  4. I sent one of the little angels to my 2 yr old DGD for her birthday. last year. It brought back memories of favorite quilting styles that I loved. Had a good time handquilting it.

  5. Lol….I have two of the Sunbonnet Sue panels handquilted and hanging in a child size rocking chair I gave my mom when my first daughter was born 26 years ago. And I also have the angels which I will probably machine quilt next year. Also have a panel from that same era/panel of baskets with flowers. Perfect for MY granddaughters to cover their babies with while at Mimi’s house!
