When I was little there were a couple summers that I spent at my grandma's house instead of in daycare and during one of them when I was about 8 years old, I begged her to teach me to use the sewing machine. We made this quilt together for a doll bed that didn't have any bedding. There were even matching sheets and pillowcases.
I don't know why the whole thing isn't tied, but I imagine playing with it probably made some of them come out. I can't really imagine picking these fabrics today, but there's something really sweet about them on this little bed.
