RSC16 week 34

 MORE OLD AND NEW PURPLES
Here is another pair of old lavender quilts from my collection.  They are my vintage 1930’s dollhouse bed quilts.

These are the tiniest quilts I have ever seen.  Don’t recall where I got them, probably about 20 years ago.  Some dear person made this Trip Around the World pair for a lucky girl with a dollhouse.  They even have fussy cut peach flowers in the green squares.  The front and back were stitched right sides together and turned, so no binding was needed.
They are the highlight of my antique doll quilt collection.  I hope these whet your appetite for the rest of them, which I will be showing every few weeks or so.

My latest purple block is Windmill for the Modern HST Sampler directed by Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts.  I’ve been doing these 12-inch blocks in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors.  I was pleased to find a nice soft green with the look of trees for the highlight.

  These single blocks week after week do add up so its time to show some of my progress.  My fleet of sailboats is hoping to get enough members to take off on a world cruise (or something more within my budget).  

If I did have that kind of budget I would already be on my way and blogging from some exotic isle with Wifi and nice cool breezes.  

Wishing you all cool breezes this week.

  1. Ha, if you've got any of the heat and humidity we have; just close your eyes, turn on a fountain, or maybe a tap ha, and sit on your porch or patio and you might just feel a bit of a breeze, might not be cool 😉 Love your doll quilts, wow.

  2. Those tiny doll quilts are to die for – and the purple is even in the color of the month! I love your fleet and the windmill block! Perhaps the boats can sail off to Spain and chase windmills…

  3. What a cute pair of tiny doll quilts!!! Beautiful purple windmill and the boats are looking good together as if they are ready for a new regata. Have a wonderful weekend and a great week.
