Vintage Sheet Doll Quilts

A coworker of mine has the cutest daughters.  Here they are at my wedding (2.5 years ago):

Last year Sherrie asked me to crochet them each a sweater.  One girl wanted pink, and the other wanted purple.  Unfortunately I can't seem to find a picture of them right now...

The other day I thought I'd make them each a doll quilt just for the fun of it.

I made them out of vintage sheets.  They're pretty much identical except for the quilting.  I didn't want to make them to different in case they both liked the same one, but I wanted to make sure they could tell them apart.

I did one with straight line quilting 1/4" on either side of the seams.

And I did the other with diagonal lines.

for the back I used some thrifted fabric.

Then I rolled them up and tied them with matching ribbon.  All ready to go!


  1. What a cute and sweet present! That's very smart making them almost identical. :D

  2. These are so cute!! They're going to love them :) I like the ribbon idea too!

  3. I'm sure they'll love them - they are very sweet!
