Dressing a Canopy Doll Bed

Shona is dressing this wonderful doll bed.

I thought you would enjoy seeing the details,
and she agreed to share!
The canopy is in process, we can see that later.


The medallion center was cut from yardage and appliqu├ęd onto the light fabric.

The center medallion finished at 6" square.
Isn't the hand quilting beautiful?

The medallion was cut from an Anna Griffin Jolie print.

The pillow case is hand embroidered with her monogram.
The stitching was done free hand - not using waste canvas.
Wonderful attention to detail.

Under the quilt are beautiful lace trimmed sheets.
The original ticking mattress was freshened and refilled.

The quilt is beautiful even off the bed.
Shona lightly pencils her hand quilting lines before stitching.
Note the lower corners are designed to accommodate a four poster bed.

The reproduction fabric squares were cut 2", finishing at 1.5"
They alternate light and dark.
Here you can see the quilt fit around the bed posts.

Thank you for sharing Shona!
Happy Stitching,
Dawn
