A Very Odd Quilt
So! I can imagine some grandma fashioning this little quilt with a grandchild in mind.....then having the grandchild run in fright from the almost life-sized doll figure on the front (it has NO FACE!). It was brought to me a by a friend who I suspect wanted to see my reaction mostly.
It's a great child quilt in many ways. Right size, 35" x 35". Nice and soft, with a fine flannel backing. Grandma even added SpongeBob SquarePants binding, something a child would love. The doll figure is appliqued to the front. The black fabric is a shiny synthetic, the dress and headdress a familiar quilting cotton.
I like the earrings. I'm not sure they would meet some safety standards, but they are a nice touch.
I am sad to report, this quilt seems quite unused. And the maker might have felt low self-esteem after it was rejected.... It only cost a dollar at the garage sale where it was discovered.
