I pose this question…Is it a bad thing to buy jewelry that goes with a quilt? I didn’t think so when I purchased this little bobble at Cottage Jewel, Danville, CA. It was made in the 1920s or 30s and is pot metal and rhinestones. Love it!
Here are some of the repro fabrics that I picked at the some shops Suzi and I visited. Boy, she sure knows here way around the area!
Now for the antique quilts. My collection of doll quilts is growing rapidly. At the very first store I found all three pieces pictured and I just had to have them. Two are true doll quilt and they fit all the criteria. The other may have been started as a pillow but could have been used as a doll quilt. The two with pictures on them are made from Cigar Silks and are perfect. What a find! The crazy quilt has a few shattered silks but all in all in pretty good shape.

I am so glad I found these little quilts before my lecture so I could show them off to the Diablo Valley quilters.
